A beautiful single drive Scotch Tension spinning wheel in a modern design. The Kromski Fantasia features a weighted Walnut wood flourish across the centre of the wheel and a magnetic flyer for easy access bobbin exchange.
The rare earth magnets keep the flyer firmly in-situ while spinning and snap apart effortlessly to change bobbins and whorls without having to remove drive bands first. The sealed ball bearings reduce noise and allow the spinning wheel to rotate smoothly and effortlessly.
The Fantasia also has sliding flyer hooks which allow for precise adjustment as the bobbin fills and the 4 interchangeable whorls supply a range of speeds/ratios to produce a wide variety of yarns. The wheel includes the standard whorl (ratios 5 and 8:1), and the Slow Whorl (ratios 4 and 6:1), Fast Whorl (ratios 10 and 14:1) and Extra Fast Whorl (ratios 18 and 20:1) can be ordered as additional accessories.
Included with your Kromski Fantasia Spinning Wheel are 3 Bobbins (120g/4.2oz capacity), Spinning Wheel Oil, a Threading Hook and a magnetic Flyer for easy access bobbin exchange.
The wheel frame and base are made from European Alder and Birch wood, and the wheel is made from premium MDF with a walnut wood accent 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.
