Majacraft Bobbin, Plastic – Standard
Canadian shipping only. Majacraft's newly upgraded standard bobbin is made from molded plastic, :specially chosen to minimize the sound made by the tension string in the bobbin groove as well as to decrease the weight. The original tan-coloured plastic bobbins are no longer available. Launched in late 2020 In their words: "Cutouts in the end plates decrease the weight plus allow you to observe your yarn on the bobbin when spinning. Because ABS is a slightly softer plastic, we did not want them to wear out quicker so have managed to integrate some high quality and very durable polymer bearings inside the bobbin. They are tricky to see but we promise you they are there! We have also added drive pin holes so the plastic bobbins will now work on the Aura." PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND
Majacraft Bobbin, Wood – Lace
Canadian shipping only. Majacraft's new wooden Lace Bobbin is made using laser-cut bamboo ply with 3d printed rings and fibreglass tubes. The new design minimizes the sound made by the tension string in the bobbin groove and allows you to see your yarn as you spin, through the cutout ends. All the new Majacraft bobbins will now work on the Aura wheel. Launched in late 2020. In Majacraft's words: "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)." PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND
