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. There were many considerations during testing that we had to keep in mind including:
- Ball density
- Capable of working with a wide range of yarn weights
- Appropriate tension
- Work smoothly with a variety of swifts
- Characteristics of the winding angle and overall shape
It has a capacity of approximately 1 lb of #6 Bulky to 24 oz of #1 Fingering. Estimated capacity varies based on the tension and weight of the yarn. It has a footprint of 16.5" L x 7" W x 11" H ( 42 L x 18 W x 28 H cm), and weighs 4.8 lbs (2.2kg).
How to Purchase
The Roly-Poly will be released at the Daedalus Fly-In, and we will plan to have them in the shop in early April with updates to follow.
