On the opposite end of the size spectrum from the Symphony in the Saxony wheel line-up, Kromski has the Prelude. With all the same quality Kromski craftsmanship of its larger counterparts, the Prelude offers a unique characteristic of compact portability to those who want a wheel reminiscent of the antique Saxony style, but need the convenience of a small, transportable wheel for events like historical festivals and reenactments.
With a diameter of 18”, the Prelude is suited to perform in many different speeds & ratios. The Prelude was the first single-drive-only wheel that the Kromski's produced and features Scotch Tension and a single treadle. The oblique bench links to a built-in lazy kate with a two bobbin capacity.
Affordably priced and easy to assemble, the Prelude is a perfect beginners wheel, yet is occupied by components and attributes sufficient enough for a lifetime wheel.
Jumbo Flyer kits 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.
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
