The Whirligig, a motorized Skeiner/Swift combo, was born out of the need to continually re-skein the yarn used during the extensive Roly-Poly testing. It’s capable of creating two skeins at a time at 1.5 yards or 2 yards. It can skein lace weight skeins as small as 20g through 24 oz, Bulky yarns up to 1 lb(.5kg), and everything in between. Whether you are breaking cones of yarn into hanks or winding your favorite skeins into balls, the Whirligig is the tool for you.
All of our products are designed, produced, assembled, and tested in-house. Operating a farm of 3D printers on location, changes can be implemented overnight - and this means that our products are highly evolved in a short period of time. This allows our customers to enjoy a highly refined product that they can trust to be of the highest quality and reliability for many years to come.
Our design goals for all of our products are focused on low noise, high performance, light action, and smart ergonomics. As is our standard, each and every component of this tool was chosen for its quiet operation and endurance. Features common to all Daedalus products include a hardened tool-steel axle, precision bearings, and a high-quality, ball-bearing, whisper-quiet motor. Combining these ideas with a rigorous quality control check procedure ensures that every unit performs perfectly before it leaves our door. We analyze everything from the sound it makes to the thermal image signatures to make sure that it will operate flawlessly even under the most extreme use conditions.
