Kromski Minstrel 

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. 

From 2017 there will be a new super jumbo flyer for the Minstrel, which looks very exciting. More news to follow as I get it from Kromski HQ.
