When I first began to do stranded knitting, I decided to invest in a woolly horse from the Shetlands. I ordered it from Jamieson & Smith (very costly) and was disappointed with the workmanship (can't call it "craftsmanship"): holes not drillled all the way, shoddy construction, moveable pieces that didn't have their full range because the adjoining piece had been improperly cut and etc. But, I used it with satisfactory results. When I was blocking the last jumper I noticed the pressed wood the board is made from had started to splinter and come apart. It was time for a new one.
Luckily, Albert told me about his and on his recommendation I decided to order one. They come from a firm in Canada which gave me excellent and friendly customer service. The painful part of the sale was the postage cost more than the item itself but I'm pretty well used to that living way down here.
I came today and it is fantastic! All hardwood, sanded and varnished so no rough edges, good construction, excellent design, stainless steel fittings - everything I could want. I am confident it will work fine on my next garment.
Here is a link if you're interested:
My advise is to avoid this product from Jamieson & Smith and purchase from Camilla Valley Farms or another firm that sells this particular woolly horse. You won't be disappointed.
PS: Many thanks, Albert, for your recommendation!
