The Pioneer

The Pioneer has been designed by Majacraft to be a highly affordable spinning wheel – yet they have been careful not to compromise the functionality that Majacraft wheels are renowned for. As with all Majacraft wheels all accessories will fit on the Pioneer. You can add the specialist spinning equipment if you wish to pursue different styles of spinning. The wide range of ratios, a versatile Delta Flyer and easy to use Scotch Tension System will make spinning a dream! The head can be adjusted in a similar way to the Little Gem so you can customize the orifice position to fit your style and body.

The effortless double treadle spinning allows you to spin for long periods of time with no discomfort. The pedal position has been ergonomically designed to fit you comfortably as the spinner! The beautiful cream wash finish is unique to the Pioneer. If you want to start spinning with Majacraft then the Pioneer is the wheel for you!

Some features of the Pioneer are:

  • Double heel and toe treadling

Majacraft as always, are trying to make craft tools that work great and look fantastic too. So based on this philosophy, they set about changing and improving the aesthetics of the Pioneer.

The base and pedals of the Pioneer are now in solid pine (pinus radiata), similar to the stem. It is a heavier wood than the original plywood so the overall look of the wheel is much more solid. We have changed the finish from a cream wash to a warm honey colored oil which accents the natural luster and grain of the timber.

Little Gem

It's novel, it's small, it's very portable. The Majacraft Little Gem 2 breaks some new ground in spinning wheels and comes packed in its own thermal carry bag. The Little Gem is a state of the art traveling folding wheel. It is especially useful for those who need to transport their spinning wheel, but has retained the capability and smoothness to cater to all types of spinning. It is fully packaged with three bobbins in its own thermal bag. A traveling kate is included in the bag for total freedom.

What's special about it? It follows the concept of the accelerated wheel. Instead of being driven by rods connected to the treadles, the wheel is belt driven from a small crank between the treadles. At any given speed, the Gem wheel rotates at around one and a half times faster than a normal wheel. The treadles operate on a unique rolling action over the crank, entirely different from the up and down action of conventional treadles. The head portion is separate from the main stem and is able to be raised and turned to suit the spinner. This is a major development in design where the spinner can feed the fiber straight into the orifice rather than moving the hands or body to suit the direction of the wheel.

The Little Gem 2 is very easy to assemble and dis-assemble, the wheel and lower stem folding down over the pedals after the head has been removed. However it can also be carried or stored folded flat with the head assembly turned to the side.

The Gem is also available packaged with the folding stool and they can be ordered together. This means the Gem is very suitable for use while on vacation or away from home as it can be transported folded flat but assembled or in the special carry bag made for this wheel. The bag has a carry handle as well as a shoulder strap included.

The Gem easily handles tasks of spinning and plying wool, mohair, silk etc. The Little Gem, although small and incredibly light (around 4kgs or 10lbs), is a full height with attractive design.

The Gem requires you to part company with preconceived ideas about spinning wheels. Majacraft threw the rule book away! This design of this wheel is a revolutionary new concept.

 

Some of the features of the Little Gem are:

  • double treadle
  • quick change flyer
  • no oiling sealed bearings
  • sliding flyer hook
  • boilable bobbins
  • sensitive scotch tension NZ rimu construction
  • compact and light
  • extremely portable
  • spins like a full-sized wheel with an easy rolling treadle action
  • compatible bobbins and flyers with Majacraft wheels and accessories
  • Includes free bag and Kate

 

Includes shipping within continental US.

NOTE: With purchase of this wheel receive one lb. of roving your choice - Alpaca, Alpaca mix, Icelandic, white Merino or Corriedale.

The Aura

The Aura is here! A new way of looking at double drives and a new way of looking at spinning. This wheel is a collaboration between Majacraft and the very accomplished spinner Pluckyfluff.

Designed from the ground up, the Aura has new style and presence while still retaining the classic Majacraft look. It has two independent drive bands, one for the flyer and a second for the bobbin. The flyer drive has three different ratios and the bobbin drive has two ratios plus infinite adjustment. Being so unique, the Aura requires new thinking about spinning and expressing your creativity. The potential is huge and when you are ready to explore everything that can be achieved in spinning then come and spend time with an Aura.

The flyer is all new and builds on the advances Majacraft has made in the past. It shares the aerodynamic shape of our other flyers for efficient and easy spinning. Most importantly it has a new dual function orifice. Fine yarns can be held still in the delta part of the orifice. This also has the function of holding coil yarns very still so you can observe your work. You can bypass the delta and use the large halo ring for spinning huge. With the new double drive, the Aura can spin anything that can be pulled through this orifice!The new folding handle design has the grip in a new location and special bumpers on the handle to keep the spinning head away from the pedals when you fold it down.

With its sealed roller bearings for the flyer, drive wheel, and cranks, the Aura treadles very smoothly. The highlight, though, is the ability to spin highly textured and bulky yarns and still have them draw smoothly and easily onto the bobbin, a process made easy by the separately driven and separately tensioned drive bands for the flyer and the bobbin. With one very quick adjustment, you can switch to spinning laceweight yarn.
