Little Gem


The Little Gem is the Majacraft folding wheel designed for use while traveling. It is especially useful for those who need to transport their spinning wheel but has the smoothness and capacity to cater to all types of spinning.

At the beginning of 2020, we refined the design of the Little Gem to make it better than ever! Functional improvements in the stem brace and crank arrangement to give a more rigid and positive spinning experience.

The Little Gem comes with three bobbins and a custom made shoulder bag in Majacraft green. We also include a Travel Kate so plying is a breeze while you are out and about.

The Little Gem is very suitable for use on vacation or away from home as it can be folded flat and transported in the special carry bag made for this wheel. The bag has an easy to use carry handle as well as a shoulder strap.

While the Little Gem is both compact and light (approximately 5kg/12lbs – this can vary with the wood), it easily handles spinning and plying any kind of fibre, wool, mohair, silk and so on. The Little Gem is a full height wheel with an attractive and unique design.
