Liten Spindel Charkha Wheel


We named it Babe's Liten Spindel, which in Swedish means "little spider."

Babe's Liten Spindel can help you spin silk so fine that it looks like the filaments in a spider's web. When spinning from the fold you'll be amazed as you draw back with the drafting hand and see the delicate fiber you've created.

Ratios: 13:1, 14:1, 16:1 and 20:1

Weighing just 2 pounds, 11 ounces, Babe's Liten Spindel is extremely portable. Simply set it on a table or on the floor to operate. It comes with:

Babe's Sure Foot, so it remains securely anchored during use. Small enough to be easily stowed away when not in use.

Babe's Liten Spindel is made with furniture PVC, a 12" wheelchair wheel with ball bearings, a 9" spindle, and a 54" polyurethane drive band. We use a rounded point knitting needle for spindle. As a charkha wheel, it is one of the most simplest ones requiring no adjustments. Just setup and start spinning.Babe's Liten Spindel is abailable in a Right Hand or Left Hand Model.

When ordering be sure to say which hand you want to turn the wheel with.
