Majacraft Boil-a-Bobbin

Majacraft has come up with something dramatically different in the world of bobbins – boilable bobbins made of durable plastic with holes in the shaft so they can be thrown right into hot water!

But why? Maybe you’ve just spun bulky singles for an icelandic style sweater, or delicate singles for the pattern weft of an overshot coverlet. If you try to skein the singles you could be in for a tangled mess as soon as they come off the niddy noddy. Set the twist before you skein by boiling the full bobbins. And while you’re at it, try dyeing the yarn while it’s still on the bobbin. Fits all Majacraft wheels

Majacraft E System Flyer and Hook

* E-hooks (shown here) and E-flyers are designed for the advanced spinner, especially those dealing with very fine fibre or very abrasive wool or greasy wools that wear normal hooks. All surfaces that come in contact with the fibre are lined with ceramic inserts. Together these make up the E-System but the components can be used individually.

* The flyer hook is fitted with a ceramic insert and becomes a smooth wear free guide for the wool passing through it. Ceramic flyer hooks are now available in both 6mm for delicate fine spinning or a 10mm for more general use.

* The heart of the flyer has a cermic insert at each end of the brass orifice. These guide the fibre through the orifice but hold it clear of the sides. The result is a very smooth flow with no dragginging action or tension as the fibre passes through. This is perfect for the fine fibre or lace spinners. The flyer is also balanced for vibration free spinning at high speeds.

*Both E-hooks and E-flyers can be used in conjunction with your normal flyer or hooks i.e. an E-hook can be fitted to any Majacraft flyer or an E-flyer can be fitted with conventional sliding flyer hooks of any size. Call to find out what you need for your Majacraft wheel.
