Charkha Wheel - Deluxe Book

This is the smoothest book charkha available.  High quality internal parts combined with a furniture grade exterior box frame make this the premier book charkha available today.

Charkhas are the perfect wheel to use for spinning fibers with short staple lengths such as cotton, but is also great for silk, angora, or any fine fiber.  Imported from India, this is the authentic "Gandhi" Charkha Wheel. You might recall Ben Kingsley in the movie spinning on one of these. Hand-crafted in teak by an Indian firm for domestic users (yes, they are still used today), the most popular size is the book Charkha.

This deluxe model provides the familiar smooth "feel" of spinning on a traditional spinning wheel.

Features:

  • Closed Size: 2.25" x 9.75" x 6.5"
  • 3 Spindles
  • Poly Drive Band
  • Skeiner
  • Virtually maintenance free with self lubricating parts
  • Hand crafted in India

Everything folds up into a case that has the contours of a hardback book. Ideal for spinning short staple fibers such as cotton or lamb's fine wool into fine yarns. Also good for silk, angora, cashmere, or any other fine fiber.

Note: this product is a true charkha wheel handmade in India. As such, each wheel will have slight cosmetic differences.  We hope you enjoy your charkha, a very efficient tool and a sure conversation piece!

    Deluxe Book Charkha

    Posted by Lynne Keeton on May 5th 2019

    I’m sooo glad I ordered this Deluxe model. So easy to set up & put back together. It spins beautifully with no maintenance required. Even though I’m new at Charkha spinning, I was spinning effortlessly within a few minutes of practice.
