Majacraft Little Gem
The Little Gem is an easy travelling wheel and light to carry. It is an upright spinning wheel with a light smooth double treadle action, full orifice height, adjustable spinning head, with scotch tension system. It easily collapses into a very flat form factor for transport in the included ‘Majacraft Green’ travel bag.
At the beginning of 2020, Majacraft refined the design of the Little Gem to make it better than ever! Changes cover quality of life improvements like the stem lock nut on the front of the wheel instead of the side for easy access, to aesthetic improvements such as the new pedal shape, and functional improvements in the stem brace and crank arrangement to give a more rigid and positive spinning experience.
The Little Gem comes with three bobbins and a custom made shoulder bag in Majacraft green. Majacraft also include a Travel Kate so plying is a breeze while you are out and about.
The Little Gem is very suitable for use on holiday or away from home as it can be folded flat and transported in the special carry bag made for this wheel. The bag has an easy to use carry handle as well as a shoulder strap.
While the Little Gem is both compact and light (approximately 5kg/12lbs – this can vary with the wood), it easily handles spinning and plying any kind of fibre, wool, mohair, silk and so on. The Little Gem is a full height wheel with attractive and unique design.
