Majacraft Little Gem II Spinning Wheel
The Little Gem II is a Majacraft folding wheel designed for travel use. It's especially useful for those who need to transport their spinning wheel, but it has the capability and smoothness to cater for all types of spinning.
The Little Gem II comes with three bobbins and a custom-made shoulder bag in Majacraft green. It also includes a Travel Kate, so plying is a breeze while you are out and about.
The Little Gem II is very suitable for use while on vacation or away from home as it can be folded flat and transported in the special carry bag made for this wheel. The bag has a easy to use carry handle as well as a shoulder strap.
While the Little Gem II is both compact and light (approximately 5kg / 12lbs -- this can vary with the wood), it easily handles tasks of spinning and plying the likes of wool, mohair, silk and so on. The Little Gem II is a full height wheel with attractive and unique design.
