The Majacraft Stylus is an accessory that can be attached to your Majacraft wheel. The major benefit of a Stylus is that it allows you to put a lot of twist into a yarn so is particularly suited to lace weight yarns. The outcome of this huge amount of twist means that it is possible to spin a lot of yarn much more quickly than with a traditional flyer.
Works well immediately on your wheel but to really take advantage of the features, it is recommended that you use a fast whorl or alternatively a high speed head.

The kit contains a stylus and two bobbins and a spring washer if using on the Aura.
Spinning with a stylus is only truly realised on a Majacraft wheel. Because spindle spinning requires frequent starting, stopping, reversing and restarting, Majacraft wheels with their ease of treadling and precise control over direction really shine.
