Description

The Electric Eel Wheel 6.0 is a high speed production eSpinner.  It weights just 3 pounds making it travel friendly, but the bobbins hold a massive eight ounces each.  All the friction points on the flyer and bobbins use sealed ball bearings making it very quiet.  All the controls from the speed and tension dials, to the sliding hooks and foot switch are ergonomic and easy to use.
This is what is included with the EEW 6.0.
  • EEW 6.0 base unit
  • 6 bobbins
  • Wall power supply
  • Orifice hook
  • Orifice reducer
  • Foot switch
  • Instruction manual

For more information including instructional videos, a digital version of the manual, and much more go to the EEW 6.0 homepage.  One thing we are proud of is how this wheel has the best online instructions of any spinning wheel.  It has a short getting started video, a much more in depth video series on getting started if you are new to spinning, videos explaining advanced techniques for special fibers, and much more.

The EEW 6.0 initially launched with a massively successful campaign on Kickstarter and there are thousands of happy users from that event alone.
If you want to make the EEW 6.0 completely portable then you can pair it with a battery pack.  I don’t sell these, but here is one that works well.
This comes with a North American style power plug.  In some parts of the world I will try to include a plug that works with your EEW 6.0, but if I run out of these plugs then I will still ship it without the plug.  The power supply works with different voltages around the world so if you don’t have the correct plug you can either use a travel adapter or get a “c7 power cord”.

  1. Susan

    Amazing eSpinner. I just love how it launched on Kickstarter.

  2. Alex

    A lovely wheel with impressive capacity! It is much faster and quieter than the nano, and a little more intuitive to use. Truly worth the wait.

  3. Jessica Ransom

    Great little workhorse! Quick 3 minute set up and it’s good to go!

  4. Sarah Bordelon

    Easy set up. Quiet and powerful spinner. Going to have a blast with this!

  5. VELVET DISHON

    Easy to set up & get started. Super quiet & very portable. Another great wheel from Dreaming Robots. Also best customer care!!!

  6. Janet

    It’s so quiet!

  7. Melissa

    Love my two! So fast and so quiet. Can do super fine or chunky art yarn. A few spare parts included, which was really nice. Excellent customer service.
    This was the third eel wheel kickstarter and couldn’t be happier.

    Unboxed and spinning in under 5 minutes. I’m delighted to have this! Thank you Dreaming Robots for making an e-spinner that is a more easily justified expense for a casual hobby spinner, and for the great design details (sturdy bobbin weight, smooth bearings, extra parts included). I’m looking forward to many happy projects started on this e-spinner!

    I love it! I’m so happy! I really like the foot pedal on/off. It preserves your speed setting, and is a hands-free way to quickly stop and start. And the bobbins are so big! I think they’ll hold twice what I could on my traditional wheel. The hooks slide easily, and I like the adjustable tension on the bobbin. I’m over the moon! Worth the wait!

    Just got mine 2 days ago. Today, I spun a 100 gram 2 ply ball of Corriedale wool worsted weight. I watched a great video on setup. I could not be more pleased. It is amazing, easy to control, and very simple to use. Also very quiet. Next, I’m working on lace or fingering. The goal is 2 ply DK. I love this cute little thing so much. Thank you so much!

    My wife has been spinning yarn for over 40 years. She currently has 5 traditional wheels. About 5 years ago I get her her first e-spinner. Awesome wheel that works great. A few years ago I got her a Nano 1.0 for fun. She fell in love with it and uses it a lot to spin fine yarn.

    A week ago I ordered her the EEW 6.0. So far she filled two spools and and then plied them into 328 yards of double ply yarn. She absolutely loves the wheel. Thanks again for delivering a really great product at an even more awesome price. Nothing out there to compete with this little beast from a price point.

    I have a herd of spinning wheels and I just can’t stop using the EEW 6.0! So quiet, portable and a true pleasure to use. This wheel is all you need for a great price. Great videos and customer service too!

    I havent spun for nearly 3 years. Why? Cos im lazy. The bothering of getting my wheel out has exceeded the idea in my head every time.

    In the early hours of Saturday i saw this. I thought to myself ive always wanted an electric wheel. Now. I do own an ashford electric one but i never got on with it. So this was a risk. So out came my credit card.

    Being so small and light you can move it, pick it up and put it down with ease. Its small so can be stored even under my couch. It comes with everything. 6 bobbins. A lazy kate. A foot peddle and some spares. All for less than half the price of the ashford which doesnt come with all that

    So as a blank view there are a few wishes i would have. I wish the foot pedal varied the speed not just click on click off, but i also kinda get it as you dont need to keep your foot on it. I wish it had a plastic lid like sewing machines to protect it when not in use. I wish the speed numbers and the Z and S indicators were more visible as matt black on matt black is harder to see (i coloured Z and S with a bronze sharpee may do speed numbers later) Finally i wish the base tray way bigger/deeper so you could store crap in it but really. These are all minor wishes. The only point that i could mark down is it does seem trickier changing bobbins but no worse than the ashford.

    This eew is a Dark horse. It doesnt look much eg it is a simple looking beast. Its not made of some fancy pants wood, like a Golding wheel and as a result its not expensive. But thats the beauty. It can do all that the others do. In fact this pack is all you need to get spinning on a “wheel” 6 bobbins is quite a lot. But if you want more 3 for the price of 1 ashford wooden one

  14. Janice Johnson

    Another happy customer! I was surprised how easy it is to use. I added the plastic inserts into the yarn hooks so that it is easier to spin art yarn. haven’t used my four traditional wheels since my EEW 6 arrived.

  15. Cathy (verified owner)

    Great espinner! Very affordable price! I’m a very happy customer. I’ve been using my EEW 6.0 almost daily since it arrived, and I couldn’t be more pleased with how this machine works. It’s a powerhouse of an espinner! It’s solidly built. I love the big bobbins when it comes to plying, but it handles spinning singles like a dream as well.

  16. Helen (UK) (verified owner)

    Exactly what I wanted! I packed up spinning a few years ago and got rid of all my supplies because I didn’t really have room for it all and my hands started to get cranky. This little wheel takes up barely any room and it is so portable and light, I can set it up and spin anywhere to make it feel comfortable. And because I can have it set up near me I can spin for a while and take a break and go back to it without moving from my desk. I can sit and watch movies on my desktop and spin at the same time, it is so quiet. And a good price too, with enough bobbins to keep me going and a bag of spares because obviously you folks know what it’s like to be caught out! Brilliant package, thank you so much.

  17. Ellen

    I was skeptical at first about this wheel but it came highly recommended from a few friends. I figured at this price if I didn’t like it, I would resell it. It does not disappoint. It spins well and is easy to control. It comes with 6 bobbins and the price for the lazy kate is extremely reasonable. I can spin the same yarn on the 6 as I can on my $@000 treadle wheel. What are you waiting for? Buy it now!!

    I’m so impressed with the engineering of the 6.0. I’ve never had luck with any kind of e-spinner and really, never got very good at spinning on a wheel. But I decided to try this one due to the rave reviews and low price. Boy am I glad I did! I still have a ways to go with spinning consistently and well, but the 6.0 makes spinning no longer a chore. I love it! I have it sitting next to me on my desk so I can just spin for a while whenever I need a break from work.

    I’m thinking about getting the Nano since I heard that the Nano’s bobbins work on the 6.0 – so I can spin on some Nano bobbins and then ply on the 6.0. Plying is another frightening skill I need to master!

    I received my EEW6 a few days after ordering. I was absolutely delighted with all it has to offer…especially the portability and the very quiet spin! I dislike any type of noise from my wheels, and this is completely silent. It spins like a dream and is so easy to set up and to travel with. I just ordered the suggested battery pack to make it even more portable.

    I can’t review this without mentioning the affordability of this little beast. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw all that came with this wheel…and the quality, especially for the price. A simple machine, but affordable and very productive!
    I may just have to get the Nano!
