Presents:

"Little Meggie" - MAHOGANY

A

Mother Marion's Spinning Wheel aka Kick Spindle/Kick Wheel

Please allow 7 - 8 business days from order to ship :o)

This spindle/wheel is also called Mother Marion's Magnificent Spinning Machine. This type of wheel was developed in 1981 and named after the inventor's mother-in-law. Heavenly Handspinning has updated this wonderful device, which works similarly to a drop spindle, but will allow you to sit or stand while spinning, freeing both hands for working with the roving.

The wheel is turned with your foot or hand (depending on whether it's placed on the floor or a table) and spinning occurs off the tip and hook. The length and stationary aspect of this wheel make it an excellent choice for plying.

The combination of light-weight, portability and ease of use, make this wheel/spindle - perfect to take anywhere.

"Little Meggie" has been updated for the 21st century, with the addition of a radial ball bearing. The spindle base rests in the ball bearing, creating a longer spin.

The wheel is handmade by Heavenly Handspinning - www.heavenlyhandspinning.com . The wheel's base is made of mahogany. The rest of the assembly is made of oak and hardwood. The base is 8 inches in length and the total height from hook tip to base bottom is approximately 13 inches. The wheel measures 4 inches in diameter. Meggie arrives unfinished.
