The Minstrel

The Kromski Minstrel is a traditional Castle style wheel. The true definition of a Castle wheel is simply a wheel Kromski Minstrel Spinning Wheelwhere the flyer, orifice and mother of all are located in direct position above the drive wheel in a tall, castle-like fashion. In this sense, many modern wheels are essentially a Castle wheel. This beautiful Kromski work of art, however, offers the compact, vertical   orientation of today’s modern wheels without sacrificing the Old World elegance and refinement that we are famous for delivering in our products.

Equipped with an 18” diameter wheel, the Minstrel is indeed capable of delivering a full wheel impact without demanding the full wheel real estate. With the orifice being located directly above the wheel and consequently, the treadles, many spinners find this arrangement to be more comfortable to spin on than one where the orifice is off-set to the treadle.

The Minstrel is a double treadle wheel bursting with detailed, handcrafted wood turnings and can be adjusted to operate in either double drive mode or single drive mode with Scotch tension. The optional distaff easily attaches for spinners requiring assistance with longer staple-length fibers, such as flax or hemp. Add this charming yet multi-functional wheel to your archive today and delight yourself with thoughts of yesteryear every time you spin!

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 twice the  capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin.  A regular Kromski bobbin already offers 50% greater space than most standard bobbins in the industry with a generous 4.2 ounce capacity.  Jumbo bobbins double that, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!!  This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.

The Symphony

When people think of spinning wheels, they usually envision a big, beautiful Saxony style wheel. The Saxony style wheels were the first spinning wheels in history that added a treadle in order  to free both hands of the spinner. Since their inception, they have been the wheel of fairy tales and therefore, are often referred to as “Cinderella” wheels. The Kromski Symphony exemplifies the classical style of these wheel types!Kromski Symphony Spinning Wheel

It is the largest, in our line of Saxony wheels, with a diameter of 24” and an orifice height of 27”. The Symphony definitely commands the attention of the room with it’s definitive sloping bench and grand sprawl measuring 43” wide. Although capacious, the weight of this wheel is quite conservative at only 15 pounds.

It is a double treadle wheel that can be operated in either single drive mode with Scotch Tension or in double drive mode, without. An independent, tensioned, arched lazy kate is INCLUDED with this wheel. The observable turnings of the Symphony wheel, posts and legs alone display the distinctive Kromski craftsmanship but the meticulous artistry in the functional components of the mother-of-all amplify this wheel as a timeless beauty.

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 twice the  capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin.  A regular Kromski bobbin already offers 50% greater space than most standard bobbins in the industry with a generous 4.2 ounce capacity.  Jumbo bobbins double that, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!!  This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.

The Polonaise

The Prelude

The Interlude

The Interlude, the mid-size in our Saxony wheel line-up, is the newest Kromski produced Saxony wheel. Falling right between the Symphony and the Prelude with it’s 21.5” diameter, the Interlude gives the spinner maximum spinning options while maintaining the classic Kromski Saxony style. This wheel is sure to please those spinners who desire the full visual impact of a “Cinderella” wheel but may not have room for a full-sized Saxony.

Taking it’s inspiration from the Kromski Prelude, the Interlude undoubtedly possesses all of the quality craftsmanship and beautiful woodworking turnings that you’ve grown to recognize and expect from Kromski products. One distinguishable upgrade of the Interlude is the additional bobbin storage, for a total of three, on the built-in lazy kate.

Like most other Kromski  wheels, this single drive, single treadle wheel gives spinners a huge range of speeds/ratios and product outcome when factoring in the variable whorls and optional jumbo flyers. 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 twice the  capacity of the regular Kromski bobbin.  A regular Kromski bobbin already offers 50% greater space than most standard bobbins in the industry with a generous 4.2 ounce capacity.  Jumbo bobbins double that, essentially allowing you to spin two regular bobbins worth without a bobbin change!!  This means longer, continual drafts for skeins with greater yardage.

Perfectly balancing between functionality and ageless masterpiece, isn’t it time to unveil the Kromski Interlude in your own personal fairytale?
