***************************************************************************************************************KROMSKI SYMPHONY unfinished $699, clear $775, mahogany or walnut $799
This wheel has the details spinners have come to expect with Kromski products - lots of finely turned wood, attention to detail, and all the features spinners ask for. Start with a good size wheel diameter - 24" - that rotates on bearing sleeves that contribute to effortless treadling. The double treadles are well engineered to be comfortable through long spinning sessions. The flyer is double drive but also has Scotch tensioning for single drive use (at no additional charge). The bobbins are large size - and hold about 50% more yarn than some other popular bands- and they fit on all the other Kromski wheels if you start a collection.
