It is a single-treadle Irish Tension wheel and is versatile with Art Yarn bobbins/flyer and a High Speed kit for spinning fine yarns both available.

As a kit, the wood surfaces require smoothing with sandpaper and finishing with lacquer or wax. Lacquer/wax is not included so you can choose the type of wood finish to your own preference.
