Paradise Fibers Kromski Prelude Spinning Wheel Review

Prelude as second wheel

I already own a Kromski Polonaise and am extremely pleased with the quality and design of this company’s wheels. I needed a smaller wheel I could travel with easily,so recently purchased the Prelude. The assembly was quick and easy. Once I got used to the single drive, I’ve enjoyed the wheel very much. It is a sturdy little machine that so far has performed excellently with both wool and angora. I’m looking forward to many years of spinning both at home and while traveling with the Prelude

Kromski Prelude

Paradise Fibers had competitive pricing, very fast shipping, and great customer service. I was so pleased when my wheel arrived that my husband got me a rigid heddle loom as well so I can immerse myself in every fiber art possible. I will be using Paradise Fibers for years, they have truly great products. I have never used a spinning wheel before in my life, and I was very proud when I assembled my Kromski Prelude. I read reviews about it being a great starter wheel, and I am working on treadling in one direction these days. I look forward to getting to know it after the holidays, but it is an equisite, relatively small addition to my hobby room.

Great beginner wheel

I have spun on my drop spindle, but this was my first spinning wheel. The assembly book was pretty good and had photos, I do wish they had updated videos on YouTube as the ones they have are ten years old, but I still watched those and they were so helpful. I got mine built and have enjoyed learning on it, It’s been great to learn on! It’s gorgeous, sturdy, and seems well constructed. My only thing is the twine brake band already broke, but I guess that’s not a big deal. I just replaced with some cotton yarn. Overall I’m a Kromski fan and can’t wait for another wheel!

Product Details

***Kromski products currently are taking up to 4 weeks for delivery. Please allow extra time for your order to arrive. ***

The Prelude Spinning Wheel is Kromski's smallest single-drive Saxony wheel, with an 18" diameter for compact portability in the outstanding craftmanship of the antique Saxony style. Easy assembly and a multitude of attributes make this perfect for both beginners and lifetime use. This multi-speed/ratio wheel features Scotch Tension and is available in unfinished, finished clear, walnut, and mahogany. Your wheel includes a Built-In Lazy Kate (two bobbin capacity), 3 bobbins, Spinning Wheel Oil, Wrench, and a Threading Hook.

Jumbo Flyer kits are available to upgrade your Prelude. These expand the spinners range in two ways.  First, the type of yarn created can vary from lace-weight to super bulky art yarn because of the larger orifice on the jumbo flyer. Subsequently, the jumbo bobbin allows spinners twice the  capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin.  A regular Kromski bobbin already offers 50% greater space than most standard bobbins in the industry with a generous 4.2 ounce capacity.  Jumbo bobbins double that, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!  This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.

Included with your Prelude Spinning Wheel:

  • Built-In Lazy Kate (2 bobbin capacity)
  • 3 bobbins (120g/4.2oz capacity)
  • Spinning Wheel Oil & Wrench
