A stunning spinning wheel! The Kromski Polonaise has the look of wheels from the Baltic area of Poland and Scandinavia. This will be a plus for spinners wanting the "real thing" and for the growing community of re-enactors. The amount of decorative turning on the Polonaise spinning wheel is substantial, making it a sight to behold. The picture shows a Polonaise with the mahogany finish. The level of detail and turning is breathtaking. No other wheel being made today comes close to this level of detail.
You could pay a lot more for other wheels and still not have the beauty of this Kromski spinning wheel. The Polonaise features functional wood threaded wheel angle adjustments so the proper angle can be obtained with the flyer. “Pin and socket” bearings support the wheel, offering low friction and exceptional ease of treadling. All of the wheel hardware sits between the wheel posts and the footman passes through the bench to the treadle. Spinning wheels designed this way are sometimes also called a Norwegian style.
