"Providing Spinners quality spinning products since 1971"



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.
