Sit down at the Flatiron spinning wheel and you will feel the strength of this rock-solid wheel. The elegant design of the formed maple, apple-ply body calls upon the same drama that makes Boulder’s iconic Flatirons so striking. Much like Boulder, Colorado, this unique Saxony style wheel is anything but traditional.
The superb Flatiron spinning wheel can be customized. You can build it with either the flyer on the left or the right. With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and a fully adjustable drive wheel, the whole system is sure to spin true. The clever quick release lever makes changing out bobbins trouble free.
Every spinner can customize the wheel for their preference of having the flyer on the right or left. The wheel has self-aligning bearings in the maidens and a fully adjustable drive wheel insuring the wheel will spin true. With a clever quick release lever, bobbin changing is trouble-free.
