Prelude Spinning Wheels
Just the wheel for beginners (though you may never outgrow it!) or perhaps a second Kromski wheel for others. It has the look of an antique wheel and the high degree of wood turning that the Kromskis are famous for, but it also has all the touches modern spinners expect.
The Prelude is a single drive wheel. The good news here is that it uses the same bobbins as all the other Kromski wheels, even the double drive wheels. This means that, as you consider adding a second or third Kromski wheel, you know your bobbins will work with all the different models.The Prelude is easy to treadle, very easy to transport, and has an 18" diameter wheel (same as the Kromski Minstrel) for excellent ratios. If you like, you can swivel the mother-of-all in line with the bench for a more compact "package" when moving the wheel or for storage.The Prelude is made of European alder and birch. This is a perfect wheel for reenactors.
This wheel comes boxed as a kit but goes together quickly.
