In spinning, a lazy Kate (also simply known as a Kate) is a device used to hold one or more spools or bobbins in place while the yarn on them is wound off from the side of the bobbin. Typically, a Kate consists of multiple rods, which allow the bobbins to spin. Tensioned Kates have a band that loops over the bobbins to prevent them from spinning freely. Some spinning wheels have built-in Kates, although these tend to be more cumbersome to use than free-standing ones.
Kates are commonly used to ply yarn but may be used for any task which involves winding off yarn from a bobbin, or storing and displaying your drop spindles.
Personalised sizes can be made please send specifications so we can confirm acceptance of order and the price.
