We are so excited to have this new, affordable, efficient and beautiful wheel to add to our line of quality spinning wheels!
Introducing the Crosspatch Creations Charka! You're going to love how it spins cotton!
This Charkha is an upright spinning wheel designed by Joan Contraman and built by her husband whose goal was to design a charkha that was both functional, sturdy and affordable.
With a drive wheel diameter of 9.75 inches, this little wheel spins cotton with speed and efficiency, providing the cotton fibers with the essential twist to hold them together as a yarn. This is a great way to "spin off the tip".
The Crosspatch Creations Charka will also spin the finer fibers of cashmere, camel, etc. beautifully. Both the drive wheel and spindle are mounted on ball bearings for easy turning. Made of a variety of hardwoods with a durable steel spindle. Assembly directions and finishing suggestions are included with the wheel.
Choose your wheel Unfinished or Handpainted. Please allow 4-5 weeks delivery for Unfinished and 8-9 weeks for Handpainted. Each wheel is custom-made. No two handpainted wheels will be alike. Choose your color/style preference below.
