The Kromski Fantasia has a unique flyer setup based on a powerful magnet. This allows for exceptionally smooth spinning. On the Kromski Fantasia, the way to change the spinning ratio is to use a different whorl, rather than changing the entire flyer unit like on traditional setups. The whorl is one of two wheels that the drive band moves around – the other being the main drive wheel. A smaller whorl gives a higher ratio: that means that for one turn of the drive wheel, the whorl turns more times, which means you can get more twist into the yarn for the same amount of treadling. This is useful for spinning finner yarns so that you don’t have to treadle faster and faster.
This is my favourite add-on to the Kromski Fantasia, which is perfectly set up for mid-weight and chunky art yarns, to make it easier to spin finer yarns.
