SPINNING: Kromski Wheels

The Kromskis of Wolsztyn, Poland, have been wood turners and wheel workers for three generations. The recently re-engineered wheels retain their characteristic “old world” styling and charm, combining excellent craftsmanship with the features wanted by today’s spinners. They also make a lovely rigid heddle loom, called the Harp, in several widths. Prices are at the bottom of the page.
THE FANTASIA
The newest in the Kromski collection. Has a new style single drive flyer design. Changing bobbins is very fast, the front of the flyer simply pulls off - no need to involve the drive band. And both the flyer and the wheel spin on sealed ball bearings for a truly smooth feel. The Fantasia is made of European alder and birch and available in several wood and color combinations.

• wheel diameter - 18"; double treadle
• orifice height - 28"; size - 3/8"
• 3 bobbins; they will fit all other Kromski wheels
• single drive with Scotch tension with interchangeable whorls
• also includes threading hook, attached Lazy Kate and needlenose bottle of spinning wheel oil; uses an elastic drive band
• Ratios: 5 and 8 to 1. Additional whorls - 10 and 14:1, 18 and 20:1 - are available; whorls exchange very easily
• ball bearings on wheel axle and flyer
• wheel part is MDF or veneer MDF; available finished or unfinished
• weight - 13.5 lbs

• available unfinished with MDF (medium density fibreboard) wheel (spKWFA), or finished either of two ways: clear wood and veneer with walnut accent (spKWFC, shown), or walnut wood and veneer with clear accent (spKWFW).

THE SONATA
The Kromskis have put a lot of thought into the Sonata. Full size yet small dimensions when folded, easy to set-up and take down, solid feel, solid footprint, plenty of foot room, easy treadling on double treadles, orifice at a comfortable height and classic looks. Spokes that draw your attention, every piece of wood with cuts, curves and character; this is an appealing spinning wheel that is a pleasure to use. A custom-made, heavily padded bag offers you a convenient way to pack-up your Sonata for travel or storage is now included with your purchase of a Kromski Sonata.

THE POLONAISE
A castle wheel with the look of those from the Baltics, with lots of decorative turning detail. Functional wood threaded wheel angle adjustments allow the the spinner to fine-tune the flyer angle. “Pin and socket” bearings support the wheel, offering low friction and exceptional ease of treadling.
