Flyer Lead Conversion Kit White


Because of the numerous requests I received the Babe's Flyer Lead Wonder (scotch) Tension spinning wheel was invented, and does it every spin nice with easy adjustment to take up and easy to control the twist. The ratio of the whorl is 7:1

The conversion kit consists of the maiden with Velcro, NW flyer with whorl and the wonder tension control. Bobbins are optional. Pictured with a standard 5:1 bobbin. You can also use the plying bobbin with this flyer.
