Item details


Our family of Thimbles are our small folding wheels. These Thimbles fold up small enough to fit under a seat on an aircraft. This wheel is ideal for traveling by public transportation. Folded dimensions are 7 in. x 14 in. x 18 in. It is 14 inches wide and 18 inches tall when open and has a 14 inch wheel. Folded it will fit into a roller board travel bag measuring 17" wide and 9 " deep. This little spinning wheel is made from solid Red Oak hardwood. Cut out from a single piece of wood so the color and grain all match. There is no assembly required. All you need do is unfold the Thimble, put the flyer assembly together following the video we supply, and you're ready to spin. ALL THIMBLES COME WITH A DANISH OIL FINISH.

Each Thimble comes with two whorls. A high speed whorl with ratios of 12:1, 14:1, 16:1, 18:1 and a low speed whorl with ratios of 4:1, 6:1, 8:1, 10:1. A drive band tensioner is included for use with the high speed whorl

A small glitch in delivery by FedEx. Otherwise I am very please with my purchase and would recommend the wheel and sellers to all.

This wheel is wonderfully versatile. It came packed well and there was no damage. I like the range of fibers you can spin without having to make modification. The wheel is perfect for a traveler. It is so easy to spin with. I highly recommend this wheel as a first or even for experienced spinners. The seller is very friendly and communicative when you present questions. It shipped in the time frame stated in the listing and is exactly as described. I highly recommend and will purchase more from this seller in the future!

I'm thrilled to have my first spinning wheel, especially one that's well made, portable and a very affordable price. Having used only spindles before, there was a bit of a learning curve but I'm spinning and plying away now. The DVD that comes with it is great and well worth watching while setting up the first time and also learning how each piece operates and how to fold it up when done. Overall, I'm so happy with my new wheel and pleased to be able to support a small business!

This arrived so quickly! It was very carefully packaged and easy to assemble. I've been a spindle spinner for 15 years but haven't touched a wheel in a decade; I set up the wheel and was spinning with no problem within the hour. I'm already in love!!
