EEW Newsletter – April 2021

Electric Eel Wheel Newsletter by Dreaming Robots LLC

April 02, 2021

The EEW 6.0 is now available in my store!  I’d like to thank the community for all the feedback and suggestions on previous versions which helped make this the best eSpinner I’ve ever made.

I will finish shipping them to Kickstarter backers by Monday and that is when I’ll be shipping out the first batch of orders from my webstore.  So if you or some of your friends were interested in the EEW 6.0, but missed the Kickstarter now is your chance.  If you are curious what goes into unloading them from the truck, I made this video of where I did that exhausting unload.

Yarn Softness

This video covers what fiber micron count is and how it is one factor that affects fiber softness, which is useful information for those buying yarn online. Then I explain two ways to measure micron count yourself at home, and talk about how these results work compared to lab testing your fiber.  I also wrote a blog post that contains related information about this whole process.

Happy spinning!
