The Electric Eel Wheel is a clever electric spinning wheel making it great for easily spinning the fiber of your choice into yarn! You can use a traditional wheel; however, there are many advantages of this electric wheel design. For example, the Electric Eel Wheel is lighter and smaller than most spinning wheels making it easier to take your spinning with you. This electric spinning wheel’s design is based on a Scotch tension design, so it is easy to vary the spin and weight of your yarn. You can easily adjust it to make fine lace yarn as well as softly spun bulky. The speed control dial gives you fine control of the speed and the forward/off/backward switch let’s you control the direction.
