Accessories for Kromski Wheels

Bobbins

The Kromski regular bobbins allow you to store a good amount of yarn; about 50% more than many other regular bobbins from other manufacturers. All the Kromski spinning wheel models use the same bobbin size

Fast Flyer for Single Drive Kromski Wheels

(Sonata, Interlude & Prelude)- Adds speed range

Be sure to watch our video on Jumbo and Faster Flyers.

The Faster Flyer extends the high end ratios of your wheel. These high-end speeds, coupled with the joy of spinning on a Sonata or Prelude, give you the feeling of a production wheel. With your regular flyer, you have all the speed settings you need. Use the regular bobbins with the Faster Flyer.

Faster Flyer on the Sonata -ratios of 12, 16 and 18 to 1.

Faster Flyer on the Prelude -ratios of 11, 14.5 and 16.5 to 1.

Faster Flyer on the Interlude  -ratios of 13.3, 17.5 and 20 to 1.

Jumbo Flyer Kits for the Double DriveKromski Wheels-Minstrel, Symphony and Polonaise

Jumbo Flyer – extend the capabilities of your Kromski Polonaise, Symphony or Minstrel wheel by adding a Jumbo Flyer Kit. You can quickly swap out your regular flyer for the jumbo unit (and back again). Here are the benefits: flyer with very large orifice .70 inch opening for heavy spinning and plying; much larger jumbo bobbin – holds 50 cubic inches of yarn; lower ratio ranges – 2 speeds – to give you excellent speed choices without changing flyer.

Parts may look different than image shown depending on your wheel model.

Jumbo Kit on the Polonaise -ratios of 5 and 7.2:1

Jumbo Kit on the Symphony -ratios of 5 and 7.2:1

Jumbo Kit on the Minstrel -ratios are 4 and 5.3:1

NOTE: if you already own a Minstrel and want to add a Jumbo Kit, you must determine the manner in which your front maiden post has been installed on your wheel. If you do not have the current set-up; a brass finger nut going up through the base into the maiden,  your will need to do some simple woodworking to facilitate the jumbo option.

The Jumbo Flyer does a lot for you. It adds nearly 2 times the space for yarn over the already great size regular bobbin, so if you are plying or just spinning singles, you can put a lot on a Jumbo bobbin. The orifice on the Jumbo Flyer is .7 inches; spin thick yarn or do heavy plys. And the ratios are great for low or medium speeds. For some, this will be the flyer for general purpose spinning. For extra bobbins, see below.

Spinning Tools

Niddy Noddies

Don’t you love the names of spinning tools? A niddy noddy is a tool used to wrap your yarn around as you take it off of the bobbin. It also measures the length of the yarn so that you know how many yards have. Kromski Niddy Noddies come in three sizes, 30″, 48″ and 72″. All three sizes come in the three finishes: clear, walnut and mahogany. the large 72″ Niddy Noddy also come unfinished. Watch this video of how to use a Niddy Noddy.

Lazy Kates

Kromski Makes Two Styles of Lazy Kaarchedmahoganytes; Arched and Upright.  Arched are Standard on  Symphony Wheels. Upright Standard on the Polonaise. Each Lazy Kate holds up to three bobbins. The bobbin rods are made of heavy metal. These tensioned Kates will accommodate most brands of bobbins including Ashford (standard bobbins), Jensen, Reeves, Timbertverticalunfinops, Majacraft and Lendrum (regular and very fast bobbins). They are available unfinished or finished in mahogany, walnut or clear.
