The Kromski Fantasia spinning wheel - But professionally painted in specialist materials in a rainbow of colours!
When ordering, please specify a desired colour, and I will get back to you with some choices. The first wheel pictured is painted in sky blue, and the finish is lovely and solid with a high gloss shine.
The second wheel is painted in vintage mint green. Yum!
The Fantasia is a wonderful spinning wheel for beginners and seasoned spinstars alike. Full of impressive design features at an affordable price - perfect as your first spinning wheel.
I searched high and low to find a great wheel for beginners or those on a budget. I wanted to find a wheel that was affordable, easy to use, beautiful and with the ability to upgrade the basic set up at a future date - and this was the winner!
The Kromski Fantasia offers double treadles and scotch tension. It comes with three bobbins and built in Lazy Kate. The standard bobbins hold an impressive 120g of fiber and are easy to access and change too - simply pull off the front of the flyer, which is held on magnetically.
It comes set up with two classic ratios, 5, and 8 to 1 (the most popular ratios for spinning yarn) and has the capacity to accept other whorls to take you all the way up to an eye watering 20:1! You can also buy a separate jumbo attachment, with large bobbins and art yarn capability. The wheel is slightly weighted, which helps you keep the momentum going.
Although it doesn't fold, it's upright design looks neat and tidy and stores away easily against a wall, and fits into the back of a car.
It is the cheapest double treadle wheel on the UK market - all for the bargain price of £250.
The Fantasia can come unfinished or with a clear lacquer finish for a little extra. Why not use the opportunity to make your wheel unique with your own colour scheme? The 'Unfinished' wheel is mostly made from European Birch and Alder, with an MDF wheel. The 'Finished' wheel part is complete with Alder wood veneer.
If you need a little help with some of the jargon, please feel free to get in touch.
I offer a standard range of colours for £50, and the option to have your wheel any colour you like for an extra £17.
