This is a specialty wheel is designed to spin extra bulky yarn used in rug weaving or chunky/novelty/art yarns. It is also excellent 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.

This wheel comes as an unfinished kit wheel, so it will need assembly. If you want us to assemble it, we can do so, but you will have to arrange to pick it up from us, as it is not “shippable” once assembled.
