The SpinOlution Hopper travel wheel is SpinOlution’s latest and most unusual spinning wheel. It has been designed by SpinOlution as a very small, light travel spinning wheel but one that, at the same time, will take the large Mach bobbins.

The SpinOlution Hopper is a completely portable spinning wheel that is lightweight, very smooth in operation, thanks to its multiple bearings, and simplicity itself to setup and take down.

The SpinOlution Hopper travel spinning wheel comes assembled, complete with three bobbins, and is made from furniture grade Birch Plywood, for years of dependable use.

The Hopper has a unique treadle that has the spinner place the entire weight of their foot on it. The motion uses the legs, and not just the feet or calf muscles to drive the wheel.

This wheel is set up for novelty yarn as its standard setup.
