The Prelude sits on the opposite end of the size spectrum from the Symphony in our Saxony wheel line-up. With all the same quality Kromski craftsmanship of its larger companions, the Prelude offers the unique characteristic of compact portability. Perfect for those who want a wheel reminiscent of the antique Saxony style but need the convenience of a small, transportable wheel for events like historical festivals and reenactments.
The Prelude was the first single-drive-only wheel that the Kromski’s produced and features Scotch Tension with a single treadle. The oblique bench links to a built-in lazy kate with a two bobbin capacity. With a diameter of 18”, the Prelude is suited to perform in many different ratios.
Affordably priced and easy to assemble, the Prelude is a perfect beginners wheel with attributes sufficient enough for a lifetime of spinning.
The additional Jumbo Flyer kit expands the spinners range in two ways. First, larger orifice and whorl on the jumbo flyer allows for the spinning of bulky and textured art yarns. Subsequently, the jumbo bobbin allows spinners twice the capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!! This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.
If you are interested in spinning lace weight yarns the Fast Flyer is the choice for you.
