Sidekick Bag

Our new padded Sidekick Bag is just the thing to easily take your Sidekick Spinning Wheel with you. Made of rugged recycled polyester fabric with a heavy-duty zipper and bound interior seams, the Sidekick Bag is designed to fit your Sidekick Spinning Wheel safely and snugly inside. There’s ample room, too, for 3 bobbins and our Collapsible Lazy Kate.

 

 

Whorls

Additional whorls – slow, high and super high speeds – are available to expand the range of spinning ratios and make your spinning even more enjoyable.
(Note: the extra slow speed whorl is not recommended for use on the Sidekick. There are issues with the fit due to the size of the whorl.)
