The Kromski Fantasia is a smooth and versatile double treadle spinning wheel, at an excellent price. This is a wheel to get you comfortable with spinning, from learning, through to easy, smooth spinning on the go. What makes this wheel so wonderful is the flyer system – the flyer, bobbins, and whorls are separate, with the flyer held in place by a super strong rare earth magnet. One good pull and the flyer comes off with no problem – without having to remove the drive band or the bobbin, and with no interruption to your spinning. The flyer also uses a sliding hook to guide onto the bobbin, which allows for very precise It’s an ingenious solution!
In addition to the brilliant flyer system on the Kromski Fantasia, what I love is the smooth treadling and clean, modern design. If you plant to paint and customiser your own, please contact us to order an unfinished wheel. The Fantasia also has a built in lazy Kate, removing the need to have another piece of equipment for plying.
