There are seven wheels to choose from. This listing is for the Interlude only.
The Interlude, the mid-size in the 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.
