Ask me about layaway for items in my shop if this would work for you. Two ways to buy - drop shipped directly to you from Spinolution or shipped immediately from my shop. You choose!
The very popular Pollywog was originally designed for the young and young at heart - but spinners of all ages and heights enjoy treadling with their toes on this perfect beginner budget-friendly wheel. We wanted to design a wheel that people of all ages, especially children could enjoy. Start with the basic 4 oz wheel for $399 and as you learn to spin you can add additional accessories to your wheel when you're ready to start spinning at faster speeds and on bigger bobbins.
The by-passable orifice hook allows you to spin bulky, ply creative, or add embellishments - and the treadling is smooth & silent. Three ratios are available - just the right speeds for learning how to spin yarns of all fibers and weights. If you prefer an orifice tube over the hook, they are listed in the "Spare Parts" listing linked below.
Want to add a wider range of ratios? Get yourself an Accelerator Kit! This removable circular piece attaches between the base and the head of your Pollywog wheel, and does two things. First, it raises the height of the orifice of your Pollywog and gives you a total of 10 speeds for spinning finer weight yarns. Adding this accessory to the Pollywog is perfect for filling the 4 oz bobbins with finer yarns.
For spinners who want to explore the bulkier side of spinning - Spinolution has designed an upgrade with spacious 12 oz bobbins for art yarns, bulky textures, and huge yardage. This upgrade can also be attached to the accelerator for additional high speeds.
Combining the Pollywog with Accelerator and 12 oz Upgrade means you'll have it all: lightweight portability, huge bobbin space, speeds for all yarn weights, and a comfortable ergonomic spinning experience that will bring you joy for many years to come. I still have some of the pre-Golden Whorl Pollywogs new in boxes for the BEST PRICE ANYWHERE! These cuties are in stock and ready for immediate Priority Shipping with Insurance - you'll have your new wheel (and any accessories - which also ship free when purchased with your wheel) in 1 - 2 days! These are BRAND NEW IN BOX POLLYWOGS - the ones on sale do Not Come with the Golden Whorl. This is a great price and available only until I run out.
Quick & Easy to assemble and needs no tools - takes only a few minutes. Bobbins are magnetic and super easy to change out. This adorable little wheel was designed with the young spinner in mind - but it's also a great travel size. With only a small space footprint, adults also like this practical and affordable wheel! The (hook) orifice height is at about at knee level, lower than the average wheel (.
I toured the Spinolution manufacturing facility and saw the Pollywogs (and others:) being made. The precision work is amazing. I love their products. Spinolution owner and designer engineer Mike is always tweaking the designs on his wheels so they may look a bit different than the pictures.
Attached Lazy Kate holds 3 bobbins. Three 4-oz bobbins are included (bobbin upgrades are not interchangeable on this wheel). A convenient rod pocket on the back of this wheel holds the Lazy Kate rods when not in use.
Choose this wheel, wheel/accelerator or wheel/accelerator/12 oz upgrade combo from Drop-Down box at upper right. The upper drop down box is priced for drop shipping directly to you from the Spinolution manufacturer. This typically takes 3 - 4 weeks as their wheels are "built to order". The lower drop down box is for immediate shipping upgrade and I will ship immediately from my shop (I have already paid to have these wheels shipped across the country to my shop so that cost is built into the price of the ones shipping immediately.
BOTH GOLDEN WHORL or WOOD ACCELERATOR IN STOCK. Wood Accelerator option (non Golden Whorl) is only $150 - $50 off! The jury is in and saying that the wooden accelerator is better than the new Golden Whorl accelerator. This info is readily available on blogs, but I have both. New Golden Whorl Accelerator is $199, both are listed here:
These accessories can also ship FREE with your wheel. I ship every day but Sunday. Your "ship now" purchase will go out immediately!
