Saxony Spinning Wheels
Saxony-style spinning wheels are the wheels of fairy tales. They are known for their classic appearance with a horizontal or slightly tilted wheel and three legs. The wheel is positioned on one end with the flyer on the other.
The Saxony-style spinning wheel typically features a double-drive system, but some models also use single-drive. Because of the larger size wheel, this style of spinning wheel requires less treadling on the spinner’s part, which can be a nice feature for some. Overall, Saxony-style spinning wheels are still cherished by many spinners today for their timeless beauty, functionality, and historical significance.
Here at The Woolery we offer several types of Saxony-style spinning wheels. The Ashford Traditional and Elizabeth 2; Kromski Symphony, Polonaise, and Prelude; and Schacht-Reeves wheels fall into this category.
