easily spin the shortest fibers into the finest yarns.
story of the Golden Whorl
In 2016 Ashley Martineau presented Mike Pauly with a wheel concept for children. Mike designed the Pollywog and was surprised when it performed more efficiently (faster, smoother, easier) than he expected. He realized the hardware he had used to build a smaller wheel was the key to unlock more efficiency (speed, uptake, and ease) across the entire brand.
Mike overhauled the entire SpinOlution wheel line in 2017-2019, designing a new Golden Whorl custom fit to new hardware to perform better than any other wheel on the market to date. The last SpinOlution wheel to become Golden Whorl was the Hopper, which is now Golden Whorl as of April 2019.
After this massive overhaul, SpinOlution wheels became faster and more efficient than any other upright wheel on the market to date. It is now easier than ever for beginners and spinners of all experience levels to spin cobweb yarns from short staple length fiber.
This is one of the many reasons SpinOlution strives to improve their products continually. If we discover a way to make our wheels function better, we will implement it.
Our niche in the spinning market is to pioneer modern spinning wheel engineering to make spinning yarn easier and accessible to everyone.
