Not all lazy kates are the same. This one is elegant, simple portable I carry the 3 ply and the 4 ply in my etsy shop . They will not scoot around on the floor but they are not over built , heavy or clunky either They ARE very portable

" JMac Lazy Kate. It was designed by Will Taylor for Judith MacKenzie to meet her requirements of being highly portable, untensioned, and present the bobbin at an angle, rather than vertically or horizontally. After producing the JMac Lazy Kate for over a decade, sales have outpaced both the capacity of Will's tiny shop and his free time. In Spring of last year, Will asked us to take over production of the JMac Lazy Kates and let him get back to his true passions - hand spinning and model trains. We gratefully accepted and are proud to add the JMac Lazy Kates to our product lineup. "
If you have not tried the Saori cone winder attachment you are missing out on a economical fun accessory from your bobbin winder I adore making one of a kind yarns from many different ones with out adding a bunch of twist!
piccolo looms go with me to our family gatherings and the grand children as young as 3 can weave!
and enjoy other fibery crafts
and the great purl and loom pocket looms too purl and loop looms as a gift or a in the pocket or purse carry project
Peaceful weaving and spinning from the redwood forest
