At the opposite end of the size spectrum from the Symphony, there is the Prelude. For those who need the convenience of a small, portable and compact spinning wheel, it's also a perfect beginners wheel but is occupied by components and attributes sufficient enough for a lifetime wheel.
With a diameter of 18”, the Prelude is suited to perform in many different speeds/ratios. The oblique bench links to a built-in lazy kate with a two bobbin capacity.
The type of yarn created can vary from lace-weight to super bulky art yarn because of the larger orifice on the jumbo flyer and its bobbin with a capacity of 190 g (6.7 oz)! (SOLD SEPARATELY)
