Majacraft Flyer – Aura Hybrid
Feb/2012 - Majacraft has just announced they are making the new Aura wheel flyer available. This strange-looking beast will fit all the wheel models, and uses the wooden jumbo bobbins that most of us have with the plying kit. It does NOT matter if your jumbo bobbins are the new ones with the two holes. That's important for the Aura wheel but the flyer works perfectly fine with the older version of jumbo bobbins.
In Majacraft's words: "The flyer is all new and builds on the advances Majacraft has made in the past. It shares the aerodynamic shape of our other flyers for efficient and easy spinning. Most importantly it has a new dual function orifice. Fine yarns can be held still in the delta part of the orifice. This also has the function of holding coil yarns very still so you can observe your work. You can bypass the delta and use the large halo ring for spinning huge."
If you splurge and get this flyer, you're going to need a couple of jumbo bobbins if you plan to ply.
NOTE: LITTLE GEM WHEELS require the special Little Gem Mini Tension Knob with any of Majacraft's wide flyers, including the Aura, Plying or Wild flyers. That's because the standard tension knob sticks out too far and gets in the way of the wider flyer arms. It's listed here below the various flyers and flyer kits. We usually keep it in stock.
Majacraft Aura Spinning Wheel
Price includes the wheel and three JUMBO wooden bobbins.
The Aura offers a new way of looking at double drives and a new way of looking at spinning. This wheel is a collaboration between Majacraft and the very accomplished spinner Pluckyfluff.
Designed from the ground up, the Aura has new style and presence while still retaining the classic Majacraft look. It has two independent drive bands, one for the flyer and a second for the bobbin. The flyer drive has three different ratios and the bobbin drive has two ratios plus infinite adjustment. Being so unique, the Aura requires new thinking about spinning and expressing your creativity. The potential is huge and when you are ready to explore everything that can be achieved in spinning then come and spend time with an Aura.
The flyer is all new and builds on the advances Majacraft has made in the past. It shares the aerodynamic shape of our other flyers for efficient and easy spinning. Most importantly it has a new dual function orifice. Fine yarns can be held still in the delta part of the orifice. This also has the function of holding coil yarns very still so you can observe your work. You can bypass the delta and use the large halo ring for spinning huge. With the new double drive, the Aura can spin anything that can be pulled through this orifice!
The new folding handle design has the grip in a new location and special bumpers on the handle to keep the spinning head away from the pedals when you fold it down.
As with all other Majacraft wheels, they have worked to make it as compatible as possible with all accessories. The Aura will fit all existing Majacraft flyers. It takes the NEW Jumbo bobbins with two special holes on one end, now standard starting spring 2011 for all Jumbos.

Majacraft Bobbin, Wood – Lace
To spin very fine lace-weight yarns like never before, you will want a Majacraft lace bobbin. The fibreglass core makes for very light bobbin and will allow you to have extra sensitive brake adjustment. This is essential for lace spinning. By combining this bobbin with the lace flyer 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.
Majacraft wooden bobbins offer stylish design and innovative technology for the discerning fibre artist. The Tawa bobbin ends and fibreglass core make for a very distincive bobbin. They have pressed polymer bearings that provide extremely smooth spinning and excellent durability. Each is individually hand turned by their skilled wood turners and will beautifully compliment your Majacraft spinning wheel.
