AURA was designed specifically for extreme novelty yarn spinning by Majacraft in conjunction with Pluckyfluff. Finally, a wheel that you don't have to fight in order to make what you want! But this wheel is not one-sided, it can spin laceweight to giant boa tail-spun without changing the flyer or even skipping a beat! This is a wheel that you will love from the start and never outgrow. Kit comes with THREE JUMBO BOBBINS.
FROM THE MAJACRAFT WEBSITE:
This high-volume production head fits all Majacraft Aura, Rose and Suzie wheels. Designed for production quantities, this is an especially good choice for those of you want to spin big, bulky yarns and have a lot of yardage in each skein to boot. This accessory comes with one bobbin, Bobbin capacity is 5 liters (over a gallon). We are measuring capacity in volume instead of weight, because depending on what style of yarn you're making; the volume of the bobbin can be filled with a lightweight lofty yarn or a dense yarn and the weights are totally different.
EXTRA OVERDRIVE BOBBIN
This is the bobbin that fits the Overdrive Head.
EXTRA JUMBO BOBBIN
This is the bobbin that comes standard with the Aura.
This flyer can be used on ALL OTHER Majacraft wheels. The large by-passable orifice and guides will make it easier to load high-textured yarns on to your bobbin. (Note- This will not make your wheel operate like the AURA, it is a different tension system altogether.)
NOTE: Loom comes with EITHER 9x4dpi reeds OR mixed: 3x2dpi, 3x4dpi, 3x6dpi reeds. Please choose from drop-down menu when ordering.
From the Majacraft website:
The Majacraft Dynamic Heddle loom enables innovative new weaving. Instead of a fixed set of reeds, we laser cut our our reed segments in different dent sizes. It is now possible to weave with a set of the same reeds or try mixing them up, moving them around or even shuffling them in and out of the heddle during weaving!
Rather than awkward wooden blocks to juggle the heddle into when weaving, the Dynamic Heddle loom uses rare earth magnets to secure the heddle in place. It makes the weaving movement fast, easy and most importantly fun. The heddle mounts have been machined in such a way that the loom supports double heddle weaving from standard.
We have included an integrated warping frame on the back of the loom for indirect warping that can create a warp up to four metres long. There is also an Easy Warp tool included with the loom for fast indirect warping.
The loom has special warp pegs that can be used to mount it comfortably on a table if you wish to weave on a table or alternatively a stand is available.
The Dynamic Heddle loom folds in half so is very portable. This keeps it very compact when not in use or easy to move if you wish to transport it.
We are very excited about the Dynamic Heddle loom and are only just beginning to discover what can be created in weaving with it. Jump in and join the adventure with us!

- 1 24" Dynamic Heddle Loom
