Lehigh Valley Spinning Wheels in Lehigh, Iowa creates handbuilt, historically authentic spinning wheels and accessories for the historical reenactor, modern spinner and fiber enthusiast.

Their wheels are reproduced from actual antiques, striving in every way to keep them true to their original counterparts, including in many cases a milkpaint finish. “On our wheels, we use two coats of milkpaint followed by a topcoat of oil. Dark red, green, light and dark blue, and yellow are all common colors that I have seen on old original spinning wheels.”
