The Kromski Minstrel is a beautiful, upright castle style wheel with classic Kromski design details.
A true fairytale style wheel with pretty detailed wood turning and optional distaff.
Double treadle with a large wheel, this wheel is perfect for smaller spaces with the vertical orifice and mother-of-all alignment. The Minstrel comes with a built- in lazy kate and comes with three bobbins.
This wheel can spin a wide range of fibers and through many ratios. Included with your wheel are some of the most varied ratios available - ratios 6.5, 8.5, 12 and 16:1, with an optional jumbo flyer which will allow you to spin the slow speeds needed for chunkier yarn at 4.5:1.
There is now a new super jumbo flyer for the Minstrel, which is the biggest jumbo that Kromski makes, called the "Great Jumbo Flyer"
