GOLDEN WHORL If you have a MACH III, Echo, or Firefly with a corian (silver) or wooden whorl - you can update your wheel by purchasing an Upgrade
The GOLDEN WHORL engineering adds faster speeds to your wheel and 30% less flyer drag. This makes spinning superfine yarns and short staple fibers like cotton a breeze!
Upgrades include everything you need to add a new size to your wheel base:
A head (attaches into the base of your wheel) A flyer (has a back with whorls, arms, and an orifice bar and holds the bobbin) A hook orifice bar (attaches to the flyer magnetically) A bobbin (slides onto the flyer and is secured to the back with a magnet)
Please note, the following wheel models cannot be upgraded at this time: Hopper, King Bee, Queen Bee.
The Pollywog & Worker Bee already have Golden Whorl engineering (no need to upgrade!)
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE? CORIAN (SILVER) WHORLS have ratios from about 1:4 to 1:20 (exact range varies per wheel model). GOLDEN WHORLS have the same low ratio range as silver whorls + faster ratios (exact range varies per wheel model) for spinners who want to explore the limits of superfine spinning. GOLDEN WHORLS have less flyer drag to make spinning short-staple fibers (like cotton) effortless. GOLDEN WHORL UPGRADE INCLUDES 1 BOBBIN
