Made from beautiful, hand-picked European alder and birch woods, the exceptional value, style and function of this travel wheel make it a very popular choice amongst spinners everywhere.
These features combined with the options of adding a Jumbo Flyer kit make this a very unique traveling wheel. Jumbo Flyer kits expand the spinners range in two ways. First, the type of yarn created can vary from lace-weight to super bulky art yarn because of the larger orifice on the jumbo flyer. Subsequently, the jumbo bobbin allows spinners double capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin from over 4 oz. up to half pound! This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.
