Single Drive

Why is it so popular? The separate drive band and bobbin brake adjustment is easy to understand and simple to operate. The bobbins are quick and easy to change. Scotch tension and 4-speed flyer allow for a wide variety of yarn to be spun. Horizontal adjustment of the maiden bar allows perfect alignment with the 4-speed whorl.
Ball bearings and large 56cm (22ins) wheel makes treadling smooth and effortless and easy to maintain a steady speed. The wide legs give good stability especially when speed spinning. The treadle is pivoted to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. Lazy Kate and 4 bobbins included. The many optional accessories make this an extremely versatile wheel.

Double Drive

The same popular wheel as the scotch tension traditional, but with the benefits of both double drive for fine worsted yarns and scotch tension for softer woolen yarns. With ball bearings and its large drive wheel treadling is smooth and effortless and the treadling speed is easily controlled.
