In Greek mythology, Calypso is known for her beauty but also is her quick and superior mind.

 

Calypso is a hand turned Mother Marion with a custom and patented ball bearing system, that gives her a super smooth, fast and long spin. Calypso's post is made from a bearing so she has little or no resistance, just speed. She has been uniquely and custom designed for a serious spinner in mind. She is so portable and easy to use that you can take her any where and every where. Calypso is really a gorgeous piece of art in the bargain as well :o) She is made completely out of maple except for her birch spindle and birch whorl which are used for their steadfastness. Her wood, like all of our products, is hand selected.


 The designer, creator of Calypso is also her maker as well. Not many companies, if any, can say that. It assures our customers that you get the best. Calypso is only available through Heavenly Handspinning and/or a few of our select friends. She is patented so there will never be another like her. Her interworkings are uniquely designed with spinning only in mind.

 Calypso is approx 16 inches long and 14 inches wide. Her wheel is 8 inches wide and 2 inches thick. She weighs roughly 6 pounds. Calypso is a sturdy but gorgeous lady.

 Here is a video of Calypso in action:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gL3rj_qhrxI&feature=g-upl You won't believe just how quiet and smooth her spin is. If you have any questions, please let me know. I always happy to help. I want spinning to be enjoyable for all. Thank you :o)

Little Meggie in Oak- Mother Marion 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This spindle/wheel is also called Mother Marion's Magnificent Spinning Machine. This type of wheel was developed in 1981 and named after the inventor's mother-in-law. Heavenly Handspinning has updated this wonderful device, which works similarly to a drop spindle, but will allow you to sit or stand while spinning, freeing both hands for working with the roving.

The wheel is turned with your foot or hand (depending on whether it's placed on the floor or a table) and spinning occurs off the tip and hook. The length and stationary aspect of this wheel make it an excellent choice for plying.

The combination of light-weight, portability and ease of use, make this wheel/spindle - perfect to take anywhere.

"Little Meggie" has been updated, with the addition of a radial ball bearing. The spindle base rests in the ball bearing, creating a longer spin.

The wheel is handmade by Heavenly Handspinning. The wheel's base is made of oak. The rest of the assembly is made of oak and hardwood. The base is 8 inches in length and the total height from hook tip to base bottom is approximately 13 inches. The wheel measures 4 inches in diameter. Meggie arrives unfinished.

Meggie without the hook is available for those who would prefer it - please make sure to note in the remarks section of your payment that you would like one without the hook.
