4 oz Flyer ($429) / 4A oz Flyer ($579)

4 oz is for spinning fine and short staple length fibers and comes standard on the Pollywog. It is also available on the Echo. It is not recommended for bulky yarns, due to the small orifice and bobbin.

4A oz has a built-in accelerator for record-breaking speeds and spinning cobweb fine yarns and short staple fibers. It is compatible with the Firefly, Monarch, and Echo.
