I recommend this product
Just excellent!

I've had this wheel for about three weeks, and I absolutely love it! It has been a dream to have as my first wheel, and it doesn't take up much space, which is perfect! The instructions for putting it together were very clear, and the video on the Kromski website for helping to put it together was helpful as well. The wheel spins so smoothly, and the video gave tips on where to oil for maintenance. As long as I put a couple drops of oil in each area I need to before I spin, the wheel is super quiet! I definitely recommend this wheel!

Product Details

Kromski's Minstrel Spinning Wheel is an exquisitely detailed Castle style wheel with the Old World elegance of an antique wheel. This double drive wheel with single drive capabilities has an 18" diameter and optional distaff to use with longer staple-length fibers. This multi-functional, charming, vertical style wheel has been found to be more comfortable to many spinners in comparison to off-set wheels. Available in unfinished, finished clear, mahogany, and walnut and includes 3 bobbins, Threading Hook, and Spinning Wheel Oil.

Jumbo Flyer kits are available to upgrade your wheel. 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.

    • Threading Hook
