The Majacraft bobbin range has been created to be both attractive and functionally excellent. The standard plastic bobbins are robust and very versatile. Our 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. All bobbins will fit on any of our wheels. The extensive selection caters for all types of spinning styles, from the finest cotton or silk to hemp and novelty yarns.
The standard plastic bobbins have a large capacity and are very durable. 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 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.
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.
