This great Lazy Kate that combines portability and the simple tensioning of gravity. Nancy's Knit Knacks took the time to design something that really works. First, it employs the tilt-back design for using gravity to provide a certain amount of tension on the bobbins. What makes the tilt-back design unique is that it has an adjustable tilt angle, from approximately 10 to 45 degrees.

The ABLK also uses a tensioning post design that is used on the Nancy's ball winders and skein-winders. Each bobbin has it own adjustable yarn guide with a 1" diameter wireform which is perfect for art yarns. This means that each bobbin can be independently tensioned by means of the adjustable tension guide. But wait, there's more!

The Kate also includes a standard tension cord system (not pictured above). The tensioning cord is controlled by a peg. The cord runs around the bobbins and provides even tension on all three bobbins simultaneously.

Three forms of tensioning and yarn control in one Kate! Unheard of, until now!

The dovetailed hardwood box stores all of the guides, rods, peg, and knobs inside. The knob that adjusts the tilt mechanism also locks the box lid down so that everything remains intact. It even includes a handle.

The weight of the box ensures a stable base so you can spin and ply even thick singles with speed and ease.
