Why choose the Silver Reed SK280 from us?
While courier companies are making every effort to deliver within a standard operating time frame, this is not always possible. Deliveries may be delayed. more info.
The SK280 is a knitting machine with the addition of a punch card unit allowing many complex stitch types for example, Fair Isle, Single Motif, Punch Lace, Tuck, Slip, Weaving and Plating to be knitted faster. It also gives the user, whether a beginner advanced, more scope when creating knitwear.
The Silver Reed SK280 has a full stainless steel metal bed with 200 needles and a needle pitch of 4.5 mm which is ideal for quickly knitting 2ply, 3ply, 4ply and light double knitting yarn. When I say you can knit quickly, we are talking about 50 times faster than hand knitting! And great fun to boot.
Gorgeous pre-punched design cards can each be used in 4 directions. Blank cards are available and can be self punched to give even more versatility when making individual knitwear for gifts or family and friends. Patterns don’t need to be the full width of the garment being knitted; the SK280 can knit a single motif, for example a teddy on a child’s jumper. As skills improve, add-ons such as the ribber attachment and lace carriage, both available separately, enable you to upgrade the machine, as your skills improve.
The SK280 is very well manufactured. Silver Reed’s diligent attention to detail has produced a reliable, smooth running machine that will last many years thanks to newly designed carriage rollers. It’s the little things that count, like the rubber table protector feet; the lid of the accessory box when attached to the machine bed doubles as handy tray to hold your transfer and latch tools.The row counter can be moved from the left or right side to give more user space.
As you can see from one of our images the range of included accessories is very extensive: Accessory Box , 2 x Clamp, Transfer Tool 1-2, 1-3 and 2-3, Tappet Tool, Needle Pusher, 3 x Spare Needles, Latch Tool, Tapestry Needle, 3 x Cast-on Threads, Cleaning Brush, Oil, 2 x Claw Weight, 4 x Yarn Separator (Spoons), Carriage Fastener, Gauge Scale, 2 x Magic Cams, 2 x Point Cams, Row Counter, Crochet hook as well as the tension post, arm and dual yarn guides.
A comprehensive owner’s manual with colour booklets showing the knitting designs on the 20 punch cards included.
Every thing you need to get knitting as soon as the box is opened is included, all you need is yarn!
