Free Standing Skeiner

The Majacraft skeiner is a new way of looking at skeining your yarn. It is constructed in New Zealand Tawa that has a light colour with a nice even grain. To make the skeiner always stable, we have used three legs. This is important because it can be very irritating to have the skeiner rock about when turning the skeiner arms. The stem and base assembly are held together with barrel nuts so it is very easy to disassemble should you want to pack it down small.

We have also added a bobbin bar to the base with a scotch tension. No other skeiner has this integrated into the design. Now you can always get perfectly evenly tensioned yarn in your skein. No more over-running from lack of tension or skeins that are too tight! The arms have polymer bearings pressed into them and then turn on a precision stainless steel shaft. This allows the arms to rotate smoothly without any flopping around on the shaft. We also include a tension washer so you can adjust the tightness of the arms to your exact requirements.

The spacer tube that is included allows you to use the skeiner arms as a wheel skeiner on your Majacraft wheel. Simply remove the skeiner arms from the stand then slip the spacer and arms on to the spinning wheel and it just works.

Free Standing Skeiner $227.95 ppd
Wheel Skeiner $98.95 ppd

"Our Patch" Lavender Oil & Beeswax Polish

is a product formulated especially for Majacraft to pamper your wheel and keep it looking in top condition. Produced from organic lavender and selected beeswax, it maintains the fragrance in the pot as well as giving protection and life to the wood of your wheel. Use a little and often to keep your wheel healthy and looking like new.
