Collection: 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.
How to Purchase
Starling V3FP purchases are now going through a Google Form Queue, in order to alleviate the issues we had in prior updates where some of our customers missed out due to slow internet or other issues. Unlike our prior waitlist, the queue does not guarantee you will get your wheel within a specific time frame. The queue simply gathers contact information and information on your potential order.
Our wheels are built in batches, and we rotate between which wheels we are currently working on. Once a batch has been completed and shipped, we then start working on a new batch of a different model of bird. For those wheels sold through the queue, they are built in queue order. We typically complete a batch of wheels every two weeks, and with the rotation of our four wheels (Starling, Magpie, Sparrow, and Falcon), a new batch of a particular type of wheel goes into production approximately every eight weeks. We do on occasion have to pause building from the queue so that we can make time to build and stock up for approaching festivals.
Starlings will be made in batches roughly every eight weeks (this is an approximation, not a guarantee) and we will draw from the queue in signup order. An email will be sent immediately prior to your wheel being built to verify you still wish to purchase a Starling V3FP, and then an invoice will be made.
