One of our most popular portable wheels. Beautiful and compact, it combines the classic architecture of the other Kromski wheels with the functional needs of a wheel that folds. You get both. It is a full-size spinning wheel that packs away as a small package, making it perfect for traveling, guild and festival gatherings or simply storage when not in use. Daniel Kromski had been contemplating a folding wheel for several years and began in 2006 to put turning knife to wood. The final result is a fusion of the needs of a modern folding wheel and the traditional look of Kromski wheels.
The Sonata is a folding wheel, but much more. The wheel diameter is 19" and ratios are 6.7, 12.5 and 14:1. The flyer is single drive and uses an elastic drive band which simplifies changing speeds. The bobbins are the same design used on other Kromski wheels which means you can move from wheel to wheel with no problem.
Your Sonata also ships with a padded carry bag that the Kromski's have made in Poland. It is padded on all sides with extra heavy padding on base to support the folded wheel. Large outside pocket for spinning supplies with additional pockets inside. Also, includes threading hook, attached Lazy Kate and bottle of spinning wheel oil.Features:
