This is a specialist wheel designed to spin extra bulky yarn used in rug weaving and chunky knitting or for plying bulk quantities. The orifice is extra large. The ball bearings and double treadle allows for an easy start and treadling. The slow drive ratios and sensitive leather flyer brake system are ideal for creating unique novelty yarns.
With its extra large orifice, big bobbin hooks and huge bobbin capacity the spinner can create and store up to one kilogram (2.2lb) of extra bulky yarn. The big flyer is also useful for plying large quantities of yarn from smaller bobbins. The central flyer is convenient for right and left handed spinners. The ball bearings and double treadle allows for an easy start and treadling. Treadles are hinged to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The low drive ratio and sensitive leather flyer brake system are ideal for creating unique novelty yarns.
We suggest that this wheel is only purchased if you want a system that is dedicated to the production of very thick yarns only. It is not suitable for spinning normal thickness yarns. If you need a wheel that is very versatile have a look at the Kiwi with superflyer.
