This compact wheel is light weight (6kg/13lb) and portable with folding treadles, built-in lazy kate and carry handle. Fold and go – it can be carried easily in cars, as carry-on luggage in planes (check with your airline first as this varies from aircraft to aircraft) and takes up little space at home. Spin a variety of yarns using the four ratios. The stretchy drive cord does not require any adjustment as you change from one ratio to another and always maintains the correct tension. The wheel and flyer are mounted on ball bearings for effortless spinning. Smooth and quiet with treadles mounted on polyurethane hinges to allow a comfortable heel-toe action. The wheel comes assembled and lacquered, ready for spinning.

"I LOVE my Joy (love my traditional, too, but my Joy is my JOY!). It's only 11 pounds and it has an amazing design - it is a work of art. Thank you for making beautiful, smooth-working wheels!"

"Buying the Joy we don't regret a moment. It's an astonishing piece of engineering and with a very nice outcome. Looking forward to share lots of wool with it. Next on the wishing-list is a carder, but that will have to wait a while". - Pjär and Carina Norén, Sweden
