Starling V3/V3FP

Made from carbon fiber and 3D printed ABS plastic, the Starling is a light Scotch or Irish tensioned electric spinning wheel that is optimized for finer weights and higher speeds. With its large motor and bobbin capacity, it is a powerful platform capable of a wide range of spinning tasks. Starling V3FP is the perfect “all around” spinning wheel. Capable of over 2150 rpm, yet Starling 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.
