Joy 2 Spinning Wheel
Ready to go and spin!
- 4 ratios
- Assembled and lacquered with 3 bobbins and a sliding hook flyer
- Padded carry bag
This compact wheel is light weight (only 5kg) and portable with folding treadle, built-in lazy kate and carry handle. Fold and go – it can be carried easily in cars, as carry-on luggage in planes (check with your airline first as this varies from aircraft to aircraft) and takes up little space at home. Spin a variety of yarns using the four ratios. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The wheel and flyer are mounted on ball bearings for effortless spinning. Smooth and quiet with treadles mounted on polyurethane hinges to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The wheel comes assembled and lacquered, ready for spinning. Joy carry bag included.
Made of Lacquered plywood
Size when folded 64 x 40 x 14cm
The features of the new spinning wheel Joy 2 (release February 2013):
The orifice height has been raised 35mm. More room between the bobbin and tension knob for the tension spring. Convenient carry handles incorporated into both the front and back frames. Nylon 2 piece universal con rod bearings snap into place. Strong polyurethane con rod joints snap into the treadle boards to give smooth positive drive. The treadle boards are mounted on flexible polyurethane hinges for incredibly quiet, maintenance-free treadling.
