Sparrow

Made from carbon fiber and 3D printed ABS plastic, the Sparrow is a light Scotch or Irish tensioned electric spinning wheel that is optimized for finer weights and higher speeds. Capable of over 2,000 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. Its petite size is perfect for travel.

    Sparrow Shop Collection


    High Demand

    Sparrows are in high demand so they do sell quickly, but we encourage everyone who would like a Sparrow to try to buy one, and if you don't succeed in this batch, don't worry! There will be another batch soon.

  • Tips for preparing for a Shop Update

    Prep Your Cart

    You'll want to ensure that you add any additional items you'd like to purchase to your cart before the shop update. This could include things like a Speed Controller, which is required to operate our wheels. If you already have one of our wheels, you don't need to purchase another controller. You can also add a battery pack and extra packs of bobbins.


    Sign In Ahead of Time

    For the fastest checkout, you'll want to ensure that you are logged into your PayPal account in advance on the device you’ll be using, so you'll be all ready to go. Anything you can do or prepare in advance to help you get through checkout as quickly as possible will improve your chances of scoring a wheel.
