For many years we had requests for a spinning wheel that was
compact, functional, durable, available as a kit, and most of all,
with a price that would fit most everyones budget. In the late
1970s we designed a wheel that we thought met all of the above

has been one of the most sought after wheels on the market for
years. Today we refer to it as the Clemes Modern Wheel.
The wheel is
16 in diameter with ball bearings for smooth
operation. The treadle is of the heel-toe design to allow starting and
stopping without having to touch the wheel. The flyer is dual belt
drive with a 3/8 orifice. The bobbins are of generous size for those
who like to spin yarns towards the heavier size or prefer not to
change bobbins as often.
is very easy to spin on. It is used by students as well as
accomplished spinners and will often be found in schools as well
as many studios.
comes with three bobbins. A lazy kate is available,

the most versatile wheels on the market today.
