Compared to hand spindles, the wheel is generally though not universally thought to be a great advance — the spinner no longer has to grasp the spindle, unhitch the yarn, wind the new yarn round the spindle and hitch it on again. There is still a pause in spinning, though: the spinner must back the wheel a little to bring the thread back from the point before turning it clockwise again to wind on.
The first development is the flyer and bobbin. The flyer rotates either faster or slower than the bobbin depending on the tension system which makes the yarn wind on.

We are sometimes told that it was Leonardo da Vinci, but this is wrong. It has a distaff dressed with flax, and the flyer is between two maidens. It is a true double drive, with the bobbin groove smaller than the groove on the the flyer whorl hard to see in the picture. The right hand still has to be devoted to turning the wheel; a small peg on one of the spokes would be useful for this.
There is a single drive band and a separate brake on the bobbin. This seems a natural development from the spindle wheel, and is probably easier to make than the flyer between the maidens.

The next advance is the treadle, which allows both hands to be used for drafting fibre. Here we are even more at a loss for evidence: all we can say is that soon after , artists in various parts of Europe begin to portray spinners using two hands for drafting.
At least one picture shows an upright type of wheel for the first time. Now worsted spinning, with the fibres straight and smoothed, is much more achievable on a wheel it was always achievable with a spindle. The versatile and diverse spinning wheels we know and love have definitely arrived.
