The Spinolution Queen Bee and the Spinolution King Bee are two really interesting and useful wheels.
The King & Queen Bees are foldable travel wheels. Spin any weight of yarn from fine to bulky on multiple ratios. The built in lazy kate holds 3 bobbins.
The Bee's are full height when folded out, and great for guild meetings and spinners who like to travel. for me, one of the best things about the Bee's is that the highest ratio is 30:1. This is uber lace weight speed! If you love spinning lace then the Bee in particular should be considered purely for it's excellent design and function.
Choose between a 4 oz setup (Queen) or an 8 oz setup (King). The bobbins cannot be interchanged between 4 & 8 oz at this time. Although these wheels look alike, and have many of the same features - there are some key differences to consider if you are choosing between the two.
The wheels fold up into a very useful box - which can be packed away for travelling by car, bus, train and plane! Very lightweight, with a truly unique design.
