Spinwise – for Kromski spinning wheels, looms, accessories, friendly advice and know how. Phone Ann on 01558 650760 or 07463 002369.
Spinwise has the most comprehensive range of Kromski equipment in the UK. We stock the full range of Kromski spinning wheels, Kromski Harp Forte rigid heddle looms, and all Kromski accessories. Everything listed on the website is normally in stock for immediate dispatch. If it’s Kromski product you can get it here.
We have also developed a range of our own hand carding and fibre blending equipment. Working with a Swedish designer we are pleased to introduce the Ekelund carder, a remarkable electric carder like no other. See the carding pages for more information on these products. The Spinwise Blending board sets are now available too, see here.
All the yarn in images on this site was hand spun by me, Ann Fisher Rhodes, using Kromski wheels and, in one case, a drop spindle. The pictures of sheep are from of my flock of mixed breed sheep kept primarily for their fibre. Click on the pictures to find out a little more (opens a new window).
All wheels are sent with Free standard shipping, to UK mainland addresses, see delivery costs for more details.
For ways to order please see Ordering from Spinwise page. Although I had originally foreseen a ‘click to buy’ shopping cart on the website I now feel it is not the best way forward. We believe passionately in customer service and support, and that taking the time to deal personally is the best option for Spinwise and our customers. We hope you appreciate this too.
There are many factors to consider when buying a new wheel, style, size, wheel type, ease of use, transportation, build quality, availability of extras and accessories… and, of course, price!Over the years I have looked at and tried lots of different wheels. Occasionally I find one I particularly like, and sometimes one I dislike. Most of the time most wheels were fine to spin on. But I kept coming back to Kromski wheels. I find them a Joy to spin on. That’s important to me – I spin every day, and often for hours at a time.
They are perhaps not so well known as some of the other prominent makes but that does not mean they are inferior. Kromski produce a nice range of styles, from very traditional wheels to a modern folding design – but whatever the style you can be sure of good quality and excellent value for money.
In these pages you will find pictures and technical information to be able to choose your new Kromski wheel and accessories with full technical back up and after sales service from me, Ann Fisher Rhodes, experienced hand spinner and teacher. I believe that service is crucial to gaining and maintaining satisfied customers, before and after purchase. Dealing with Spinwise will give the best help available should any queries arise at any time.Kromski wheels are supplied part by them part assembled.The assembly instructions are easy to follow and there is nothing heavy or complicated to do – the main wheel is all done!
Here at Spinwise we appreciate that not everybody wants to get involved with self-assembly and can offer a wheel build service for you at minimal extra cost. With over 60 years of fine cabinetmaking experience (between us!) you can be sure that the wheel will be expertly and carefully assembled. Your new wheel, assembled and fully checked by us will arrive ready to spin, straight out of the box. Delivery of built wheels is obviously not as straightforward as flat packed wheels. Special shipping crates are used and delivery costs are higher, but we do not profit on delivery – charges are always at cost to us.With all that cabinetmaking experience we thought we could also offer a finishing service on selected styles of wheel, currently the Interlude and Symphony. We can stain and finish these wheels to suit your decor, or colour it uniquely with your personal colour favourites. Whatever you choose it will be individual and eye catching! You will need to contact us to discuss options and prices.We hope to add inspiring pictures to the website soon.Everything is now also available to purchase in bare wood so you can use your own artistry, please contact us for prices. Some is held in stock, others are to order.
