Ask a Question
  • Do the bobbins for the Joy 2 fit the Joy 1?

    Thank you for your question. This is a good question.

    The bobbins for the Joy 1, are the Standard Bobbins (smaller ones). However, if you have the Sliding Hook Flyer with your Joy then these take the Sliding Hook Flyer Bobbins 130g capacity that come as standard with the Joy 2 (since your Joy 2 comes complete with the Sliding Hook Flyer and 3 bobbins) If you want to spin chunky Art Yarn on your Joy Wheel then the JOY FREEDOM FLYER is the right accessory for your new Joy - This can be purchased seperately and takes the JUMBO bobbin with the larger 225g capacity bobbin.

  • I have a joy double treadle what is the best place to have the drive band on Ispin fine wool singles most of the time Thankyou

    Your Joy 2 has 4 Ratio settings.

    14:1 (14 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the smaller groove
    11:1 (11 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the next groove up
    8:1 (8 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - go up a groove again
    6:1 (6 turns of the spinning wheel and flyer per 1 treadle) - use the bigger groove

    When Spinning coarse fibres or thick yarns usee the slowest flyer speed of 6:1, for fine fibres and yarns step it up to the faster speed(s).  You may have to have a play around until you get the right set up.

    I hope you find this information useful.
