Our unique spindle mount allows you to set the angle to what works best for you: the traditional downward pointing spindle can easily be converted to a more contemporary horizontal spindle in just a few minutes. The magnetic spindle mount holds your spindle firmly in place during use, and the spindle can be easily removed with a simple push of your finger.

Each Charkha comes with 3 spindles. Extra Standard or Plying Spindles are available at $15 each. All of our Charkha spindle tips are rounded for your safety.

There is no disassembly required to close the case — just release the spindle mount, remove and store your spindles, align the turning knob on the wheel, close the case and go!


Attache Case Charka

The Journey Wheel Attaché Case Charkha is large enough to stay in place without being clamped down for spinning. The two large lockable storage compartments will hold your spindles and fiber.

Book-Size Charka

The Journey Wheel Book-size Charkha fits easily in a tote bag for spinning on the go! This Charkha's rubber feet and center lock-open latch gives spinning stability in most circumstances.
