The Aura OverDrive is here! This is a HUUUUGE bobbin! Great for all those big and bulky, super fun art yarns. If you are curious about the capacity of the bobbins for the Overdrive head, they hold five litres of yarn (over a gallon!). This is five times more yarn than the Majacraft Jumbo bobbins
Suzy Brown of Woolwench provided much of the impetus and encouragement to complete the development of the Overdrive. She also carried out a lot of testing during the development process to help perfect the design. Majacraft has been thinking about large capacity bobbins for many years and we think this solution is exceptional.
By building the Overdrive as an accessory head, it will turn your existing Majacraft spinning wheel into a production style wheel. The secret sauce of the Overdrive is using the Aura hybrid style double drive to power it. This means that the bobbin is directly driven so it does not suffer from inertial issues when the bobbin is filled. It is light and responsive to spin with right to the finish.
The Overdrive has been designed to fit not only on the double drive Aura but it will also work with the Rose and Suzie/Suzie Professional.
The new folding handle design has the grip in a new location and special bumpers on the handle to keep the spinning head away from the pedals when you fold it down
Majacraft supports direct shipments, which means online prices including shipping costs but delivery times will typically be 2-3 weeks.
