Buddy spinning wheel – double treadle

Meet the Buddy spinning wheel with double treadles. A buddy for spinning adventures!

Buddy has 5 ratios (1:4 to 1:18) and a orifice of 18 or 12 mm. The 12 mm orifice insert ensures that your thread does not wobble.

This spinning wheel has a double treadle. Operate it with both feet or with one foot. If you prefer to spin with a wide treadle, check out the Buddy ST here.

Included with the Buddy spinning wheel, you receive four bobbins and a stand-alone lazy kate that can hold three bobbins. With a bobbin capacity of about 200 grams, you’ll be fine with large projects.

The Buddy spinning wheel is made of solid beech and laminated beech. The construction is easy to assemble yourself.

Do you spin thick, thin or art yarn?
Buddy can do it all.

The spinning wheel has Dutch tension, an aerodynamic design of the flyer, allowing you to spin with very little pull on the yarn.

Another clever feature: sliding guides with an opening through which you effortlessly insert the yarn.

Buddy is a spinning companion for your next creative endeavours.
