Arch Lazy Kates

$56.00 - $64.00

The Arch Lazy Kate is tensioned to prevent the spools from spinning freely, and a great tool for plying your spun yarn and measures

Available in unfinished.and finished versions.

The Kromskis make two styles of Lazy Kates - the arched version now comes standard with all Mazurka and Symphony wheels; the upright Kate comes standard with the Polonaise.

The Lazy Kates are very attractive and work just the way you want them to. They hold up to three bobbins. The bobbin rods are made of heavy metal.

These tensioned Kates will accommodate most other brands of bobbins including Ashford (standard bobbins), Jensen, Reeves, Timbertops, Majacraft and Lendrum (regular and very fast bobbins). (Bobbins not included with the Lazy Kate)

The kate came in pieces with no assembly instructions, so if you're not sure how a tensioned lazy kate works, do some research before you assemble, as the pieces of the tensioning system are not packaged as they are meant to be used. The knob which is meant to turn and tension the string is very tight in it's slot, which means I hope I don't have to do any fine tuning of the tension. The string is a cheap twine I expect I will have to replace as it will fray. I had expected a tightly twisted cotton string if not a nylon elastic band. Once assembled it is very sturdy, and works as advertised.
