JENSEN SPINNING WHEELS
at Apple Hollow Farm


The Jensen spinning wheels are so special! These are fast, smooth, wheels. The workmanship on these wheels is superb, and they spin wonderfully. Double drive and scotch tension are included on all models, and all are double-treadle. All Jensen wheels are made of solid cherry, and are signed and numbered by the maker. Jensen wheels come with 3 bobbins, with the exception of the double-flyer models (gossip wheels) which come with 2 bobbins. Jensen spinning wheels are sold unfinished, and are slightly disassembled for shipping. Recommended finishes: a) hand rubbed, good quality satin or semi-gloss tung oil, 2 to 3 coats; repeat if you wish to add to the patina OR b) stain if desired, seal, and lacquer (2 coats). Shipping charges are not included in the price of the Jensen wheels. Options you can purchase with your Jensen wheels are: Extra bobbins (regular or high speed), extra whorls (high speed, ultra high speed, or 4 inch slow whorl), tensioned lazy kates which can hold up to 3 or 4 bobbins, high speed kit (3 high speed bobbins and 2 whorls, 1 high speed and 1 ultra high speed). Prices on this web page reflect current Jensen prices.

TO ORDER A JENSEN WHEEL: MOST JENSEN WHEELS CAN TAKE 6 OR MORE MONTHS TO DELIVERY TIME. PLEASE EMAIL TO ARRANGE YOUR PURCHASE.


Personal note about Jerry Jensen: Rumors abound on the internet about this kind man, and most of them are incorrect, and even malicious, in their gossipy tone. Jerry is alive and still making wheels. He has scaled down his wheel production considerably as he has reached semi-retirement age, and this has resulted in very long wait times for his wheels, often over a year. The demand for his wheels has not decreased. Please disregard things you read on Ravelry and other chats and spin lists that are posted by uninformed and self-serving individuals. Jerry Jensen has not sold, leased, licensed, or in any other way given up the control of his one-man operation. Be assured that any Jensen items you purchase from us, right down to the bobbins and scotch tension pins, were actually made by Jerry Jensen.
