Spinning Art Yarns
Posted on: September 7, 2014
Kiwi Super Flyer
Comes as a kit and is super easy to install - you only need to undo one bolt when you want to swap.
The Kiwi Super Flyer has a huge 27mm (1⅛in) orifice and has awesome new free-flow yarn guides on a sliding hook flyer. The free-flow yarn guides let you spin with no hang ups or catches, even when spinning wild yarns!
The kit includes 3 super-size bobbins which have a 500gm capacity, resulting in less time changing bobbins and more yarn on the bobbin.
Also included are a lazy kate and a new drive belt.
The new Kiwi Super Flyer will fit all Kiwi 2 and Kiwi spinning wheels.
This great little spinning wheel now can be easily switched from the standard fly to the new Super Fly for spinning those wonderfully unique art yarns.
Kiwi II Spinning Wheel
This is an excellent beginner wheel due to its easy learning ratios, double treadle and affordable price. The double treadle and ball bearings allow for easy treadling and “hands-free” start. Treadles are mounted on polyurethane hinges for a smooth, quiet and comfortable heel-toe action. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The scotch tension allows easy control of the drafting process. The central flyer is convenient for right and left-handed spinners. The wheel is easy and quick to assemble with the Allen key supplied and the robust construction makes this an ideal wheel for individuals, schools and clubs. The wheel itself is made of MDF, a high-density durable wood product that can be painted or decorated.
