Y Series Wheels
The Columbine Spinning Wheel is an all-metal precision machine designed for the contemporary
spinner who is not constrained by traditional concepts. This wheel is ideal for beginners
and advanced spinners alike, and it is especially suitable for classroom use. Operation
is amazingly smooth, quiet, and trouble free. The large, easily-worked treadle allows
heel and toe treadling with both feet, giving perfect control at all speeds. The
sturdy metal frame will never warp or twist out of shape.
The smooth flyer eyes allow for either heavy or fine yarns. The sliding hook and
guide are easily changed to either side of the flyer, so your bobbin fills easily
no matter what size yarns are being made. The large aluminum bobbin holds a super
quantity of yarn, and extra bobbins are available for plying and storage. The flyer
pulley has three diameters, providing a wide range of operating ratios. Belt tension
is precisely adjusted over a wide range by turning a knob at the top of the machine.
The Columbine is the perfect wheel to take to workshops and demonstrations because
it is light, compact, and durable. A denim carrying bag, a cotton dust cover and
a matching Lazy Kate are all available as accessories.
One large capacity bobbin is included with each wheel.
|Matching Lazy Kate|
Our new Lazy Kate is made from the same material as our wheels, it comes in the same
colors, and holds six bobbins. It is 14" high, and just 13" wide, a classy
companion to your wheel.
