Description

Our new Prelude Spinning Wheel is a perfect beginners wheel because it is affordably priced, easy to assemble, and is also sufficient enough to use for a lifetime wheel. The Prelude Spinning Wheel is also compact, which means it is much more portable than other wheels. So, if you want the convenience of a small, transportable wheel for events or small spaces, this one is for you.

About the Prelude:

Because the Prelude has a diameter of 18” it 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.

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!!  So you get longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.
