One of the things I love about the Sonata is how quickly I can fold up this wheel and take it with me wherever I go. It can be unpacked from the highly durable, heavily padded backpack (that is INCLUDED with purchase) and ready to spin at your next class or guild meeting in 3 minutes or less. When the Sonata is folded for transportation, the dimensions are a compact 22” tall, 19.5” wide and 7” deep. Carrying the Sonata is almost effortless because the wheel and bag combined weight is less than 16 pounds.
Beautifully crafted from hand-picked European alder and birch woods, it boasts a large 19.5” diameter when most travel wheels are less than 15. The Sonata also has the tallest orifice height for travel wheels on the market, at 33” when adjusted to it's tallest height.
Another unique characteristic of this travel wheel is the add on options of the Jumbo Flyer Kit and the Fast Flyer.
Jumbo Flyer kits expand the spinners range in two ways. First, the type of yarn created can go to a 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.
The Fast Flyer add on option allows you to spin lace and gossamer weight yarns.
The exceptional value, style and function of this travel wheel makes it a very popular choice among spinners everywhere.
