Wheel bracelets a unique new way to secure spinning wheels for transport or when not in use are now available in my shop. These high quality handmade bracelets from Celtic Leathers (Wales) prevent the flyer falling off or thread getting into a tangle on Ashford Traditional and other wheels which are supported from a stock. They brace the wheel by clamping it to the frame and the flexibility of the leather allows for a soft, yet firm grip on the wheel which leaves no marks and is highly decorative as well as being uniquely functional.
The unique Wheel Bracelets £12.99 +p&p are hand-made in genuine leather and decorated with a Celtic design throughout; they incorporate three different fittings to allow for the difference in wheels. When not in use, the bracelets are of such high quality they can be worn as items of jewellery.
Liz Baxter, a hand spinner from Wales who commissioned the first bracelets said: ‘I was fed up with the dogs knocking my wheel over or brushing against it and thread disappearing through the orifice – or worse still the flyer falling off completely – I can’t think why no-one has thought of it before. I am very grateful that Pam is willing to sell these for us though her online shop and make them available to spinners beyond this remote region of Wales. Hopefully it will bring valuable support to a deserving local craftswoman.’
