Tarra Carousel Flyer Hooks

I am sooo excited because I have managed to source some of the flyer hooks for my Tarra Carousel spinning wheel that I purchased recently on Ebay.

Remember when I showed you this picture that I featured on my blog post? One of the hooks had lost its winding mechanism.

Well this is what I’ve managed to source….three pairs of the hooks!!

Oh the excitement as I opened the package and tried them and they all fit perfectly 🙂

I must thank ‘Spinneroo’ from the Australian Spinning Wheel Group on Ravelry who directed me to the Victorian Handweavers and Spinners Guild. The lovely Dorothy assisted me. I provided her with the above photo (with the arrows in it) which enabled her to identify the Guild did have the flyer locking hooks. Two for $5 so I bought six so I can have some spares.

It doesn’t take much to make me happy 🙂

Until next time….

  1. Oh my gosh! Spineroo taught me how to spin and took me under her wing when I joined the local spinning group!! Just this week she was talking about these hooks!!
    Congrats on tracking them down and at that price it would be worth stocking up on a few spares. Happy spinning, Mel!


  2. I have a Tarra Carousel which I bought close to 30 years ago in Adelaide. I would like to buy a few extra flyer hooks (mine are wearing out in places) and some extra bobbins as well. Could I have your contact for the hooks?
    Your wheel looks almost identical to mine, except mine only holds 2 bobbins for plying.
