The Symphony is the largest of the Kromski Saxony spinning wheels. Although it only weighs 6.8kg the wheel diameter is 60cm, while the wheel, sloping bench and legs occupy a full 110cm in length.
A classic story book wheel, the Saxony’s were the first to add a treadle for hands free spinning. The Kromski craftmanship is evident in their version of this historical design; the wheel spindles, legs, posts and mother-of-all are meticulously hand turned.
The double treadle can be operated in either single drive mode with Scotch Tension, or in double drive mode without.
Adding a Jumbo Flyer kit, which is available separately, allows you to spin a range of yarns from lace weight through to bulky art yarn. As the Jumbo bobbin capacity is twice that of the standard Kromski bobbin, it is possible to spin longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.
Included with your Kromski Symphony Spinning Wheel are a free standing tensioned Arched Lazy Kate (3 bobbin capacity), 2 Bobbins (120g/4.2oz capacity), Spinning Wheel Oil and Wrench, and Threading Hook.
The Symphony is made from beautiful European Alder and Birch wood and left in the natural wood so that you can choose your finish. Make a statement and stain the wood any colour you like, or bring out the natural grain of the wood by applying Superior Danish Oil – the options are endless. Supplying these Kromski Spinning Wheels untreated means we are able to pass on a saving of the product cost, making them excellent value for you.
