The Aura is here! A new way of looking at double drives and a new way of looking at spinning.
This wheel is a collaboration between Majacraft and the very accomplished spinner Pluckyfluff.
Designed from the ground up, the Aura has new style and presence while still retaining the
classic Majacraft look. It has two independent drive bands, one for the flyer and a second for the
bobbin. The flyer drive has three different ratios and the bobbin drive has two ratios plus infinite
adjustment. Being so unique, the Aura requires new thinking about spinning and expressing your
creativity. The potential is huge and when you are ready to explore everything that can be achieved
in spinning then come and spend time with an Aura.
The flyer is all new and builds on the advances Majacraft has made in the past. It shares the
aerodynamic shape of our other flyers for efficient and easy spinning. Most importantly it has a
new dual function orifice. Fine yarns can be held still in the delta part of the orifice. This also has
the function of holding coil yarns very still so you can observe your work. You can bypass the delta
and use the large halo ring for spinning huge. With the new double drive, the Aura can spin
anything that can be pulled through this orifice!
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.
As with all other Majacraft wheels we have worked to make it as compatible as possible with all
accessories. The Aura will fit all existing Majacraft flyers. It fits all wood bobbins produced after
April 2010. There are three jumbo wooden bobbins included with the Aura.
