Detailed Description

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. The hybrid flyer lets you use the delta orifice for spinning fine yarn or the large halo ring for bulky or textured yarns. With one very quick adjustment, you can switch back and forth. Aura wheel specifications:

  • height: 32 inches
  • orifice: approx .88 inch
  • ratios: 4.1:1, 5.4:1, 7.3:1
  • weight: 7.5kg (16.5 lb)
  • includes 3 jumbo wooden bobbins
  • wheel diameter: 13.25 inches

Options for the Majacraft Aura include their universal lazy kate and the trundler, the wheels for easy transport. Like the Rose and the Suzie, the Aura folds over easily to carry as well. The current Aura fits all wooden bobbins produced after April 2010 and the current standard and jumbo plastic bobbins.

The Aura wheel comes unassembled; it has a lacquer finish. The wheel itself is made from solid bamboo and the frame from New Zealand rimu.
