Made from carbon fiber and 3D printed ABS plastic, Sparrow is a light Scotch or Irish tensioned electric spinning wheel that is optimized for finer weights and higher speeds. Capable of over 2000 rpm, yet Sparrow is just as comfortable walking and jogging from 300-900 rpm. Swap from Scotch to Irish quickly, when your project needs the extra take up that Irish offers... or use Scotch to keep tension low for the finest yarns. Design aspects are focused around low noise, high performance, light action, and smart ergonomics. The bobbin can be changed very quickly without removing the flyer or drive band because of the pivoting maiden. Take up can be very light because of features like aerodynamic coupling – the flyer channels air into the bobbin to help keep it better synchronized. Each and every component was chosen for quiet operation and long life. Wear components are designed to be user-replaceable, including the motor and maiden bearing. Orifice is 6mm, Package comes with 3 bobbins, capacity is 5+ oz of 30 wpi single ply. Weighing in at 1.5 lbs (650g) and 8"L x 6"W x 7"H (20x15x18cm), it's perfect for travel.
