Falcon

Made from carbon fiber and 3D printed, ABS plastic, the Falcon is a light, Scotch-tensioned electric spinning wheel that is optimized for spinning the finest weights at the absolute highest speeds of any e-spinner on the market — by a wide margin. The Falcon is capable of spinning at 4200 RPM, yet it’s just as comfortable jogging along at 500 RPM.

This is a specialty e-spinner created specifically for those who spin thread and cobweb singles on the regular and are looking to do so with the option of production-level speeds. While we love to see our e-spinners out in the world, this is not an entry-point wheel, nor is it the right wheel for everyone. If you’ve maxed out the speed options on your Sparrow or Starling and find yourself waiting for twist to build into your singles while spinning at 100%, this could be the e-spinner for you.

 

Be aware that unlike our other Daedalus models, the Falcon is Scotch-tension driven only, offering the lightest of takeups combined with speeds previously unseen on the electric spinning wheel market. While the unit spins equally well at its lowest speed, it was designed for a specific market of highly experienced users whose requests for this e-spinner piqued our engineering minds into action.

RPM Speed 

The following RPM (rotation per minute) stats were recorded from Rebecca Giles’s Falcon, “Yetta,” who has approximately 30 hours of break-in time (top RPM will increase during break-in, which can be upward of 100 hours). Also, the RPM can vary slightly from one wheel to the next, so please use this as a general guideline.
