Mother Marion's Spinning Wheel aka Kick Spindle/Kick Wheel
This spindle/wheel is also called Mother Marion's Magnificent Spinning Machine. This kind of wheel was developed in 1981 and named after the developer's mother-in-law. Heavenly Handspinning has updated this wonderful device, and added features which make it work all the better. "Little Meggie" has been updated for the 21st century, with the addition of a precision, radial ball bearing which has created her protected intellectual property status.
Meggie works similarly to a drop spindle, but will allow you to sit or stand while spinning, freeing both hands for working with the roving. The wheel is turned with your foot or hand (depending on whether it's placed on the floor or on a table) and spinning occurs off the tip and hook. The spindle base rests in the ball bearing, creating a longer spin. The length and stationary aspect of this wheel make it an excellent choice for plying.
The combination of light-weight, portability and ease of use, make this wheel/spindle - perfect to take anywhere. It is also a great tool for folks with limited space.
Each Meggie is fashioned by hand, at Heavenly Handspinning - www.heavenlyhandspinning.com The wheel's base is made of beautiful, solid red oak, which is hand selected for color and wood pattern. The rest of the assembly is made of oak and hardwood and only the best is chosen. The base is 8 inches in length and the total height from hook tip to base bottom is approximately 13 inches. The wheel measures 4 inches in diameter. Meggie comes unfinished.
