Made from carbon fiber and 3D printed ABS plastic, the Roly-Poly is an electric ball winder that winds nostepinne-style balls. It has gone through extensive development to ensure the prettiest winding possible along with the ease of use and the qualities we all know and love of the Daedalus Spinning Wheels.
