The Majacraft bobbin range has been created to be both attractive and functionally excellent. The standard plastic bobbins are robust and very versatile. The wooden bobbins have lightweight fibreglass cores and laminated bamboo bobbin ends. They have polymer bearings that provide extremely smooth spinning and excellent durability. Each wooden bobbin is individually hand-turned so you know you are buying something unique. Most of the bobbins will fit on any of the wheels. The extensive selection caters for all types of spinning styles, from the finest cotton or silk to hemp and novelty yarns.
Nothing is ordinary in the Majacraft range and our plastic bobbins are no exception. They have a large capacity and are very durable. In fact you can even dye and boil them with your yarn still on the bobbin! Majacraft wheels come with at least three plastic bobbins unless we are instructed otherwise (excluding the Aura).
Our wooden bobbins offer attractive design and innovative technology for the discerning spinners. The laminated bamboo bobbin ends and fibreglass core make for a very distincive bobbin. Each is individually hand-turned and will beautifully compliment your Majacraft spinning wheel.
The jumbo bobbins have a large capacity and can be used in conjuction with a plying flyer, Wild Flyer or Aura Hybrid flyer. Like all our wood bobbins they are made using bamboo and fibreglass so will match your other Majacraft bobbins. You can ply up to two standard bobbins of yarn onto the Jumbo bobbin or you can spin longer yarns when using it with a Wild Flyer or Aura Hybrid flyer.
The Lace Bobbins have been created to spin very fine lace weight yarns. The special thin wall fibreglass cores make for very light bobbins and will allow you to have extra sensitive brake adjustment. This is essential for lace spinning. By combining this bobbin with our lace flyers you will be able to spin at very high speeds with ease. These bobbins have a "fat" core to reduce the "yarn-to-bobbin angle" and hence the tension on the yarn as you spin (to prevent unnecessary breakage of fine yarns).
The baby bobbins also use the bamboo and fibreglass design. These can be used as a plying bobbin for your lace kit or alternatively as a high-volume high-speed bobbin. In a similar fashion to the jumbo bobbin, you can fit two lace bobbins of yarn onto a single baby bobbin. The baby bobbins use the same size flyer as for the lace bobbins.
Again Majacraft have made something that is just that little bit different. The Majacraft Stylus is a new way of looking at traditional spinning with a spindle.
The major benefit of a Stylus is that it allows you to put a lot of twist into a yarn so is particularly suited to lace weight yarns. The outcome of this huge amount of twist means that it is possible to spin a lot of yarn much more quickly than with a traditional flyer.
Spinning with a stylus is only truly realized on a Majacraft wheel. Because spindle spinning requires frequent starting, stopping, reversing and restarting, Majacraft wheels with their ease of treadling and precise control over direction really shine.
The Stylus bobbins can be purchased individually to go with your Majacraft Stylus. They too use fibreglass and bamboo construction so will match your other wooden bobbins as well as being very durable. While smaller and shorter than any of our other bobbins, they will hold a huge amount of fibre compared to traditional quill type spinning. They will also fit just fine on our lazy kates.
The overdrive bobbins have the same quality and beauty as our other wooden bobbins. They have lightweight fibreglass cores and laminated bamboo bobbin ends.
If you are curious about the capacity of the bobbins for the Overdrive head, they hold five liters of yarn (over a gallon!). This is five times more yarn than the Majacraft Jumbo bobbins.
The Overdrive bobbin has been designed to fit not only on the double drive Aura but it will also work with the Rose and Suzie/Suzie Professional.
