Echo by SpinOlution
The Echo was designed as an economical option for spinners wanting a functional, lightweight wheel. Simple enough for every new spinner to learn and grow on, and engineered for all spinners to enjoy. The Echo has state of the art engineering in a lightweight, affordable studio wheel design. If you are learning to spin, have a shop, or teach spinning, then this is a perfect wheel for your collection. Simple enough for the novice spinner to learn and grow on and engineered for the most seasoned spinners to enjoy.
The Echo has all the design features of the MACH III - but in a lightweight studio design. Weighing only 14 pounds, you can carry this wheel to vending events and classes by the handle in the back of the head. Priced similarly to the Pollywog (if you include all the accessories) this affordable spinning wheel is the perfect choice for spinners wanting one wheel to meet all their needs.
The 4-speed 4 oz setup has a ratio of 1:17 for spinning fine weight yarns. The 16 oz setup is just the right size for big yardage, bulky yarns, and art yarn spinners - without losing the ease of portability. The 8 oz setup is a perfect mid-range size. The standard Lazy Kate attaches to the back of the Echo for convenient plying. The Skein Winder fits both the 8 oz and 16 oz setups for efficiently unwinding bobbins into skeins. With the by-passable hook orifice, you can spin any weight of yarn - or include any embellishment - without getting stuck in an orifice. Magnetic bobbins make switching bobbins & production spinning effortless. The stretchy drive band can be moved to different ratios (speeds) in seconds. The treadling action is ergonomic, effortless, smooth and silent.
Due to its lightweight base, the Echo is not compatible with the 32 oz or 64 oz setup. If you would like a larger setup, it is available on the MACH III, Hopper, or Firefly.
