The Roberta electronic spinning wheel by Ertoel is versatile, efficient, much quieter than other electric wheels on the market, and it does not interfere with television reception. Adjustable speed control, up to 1200 rpm,120 volts, forward and reverse. 5/8" orifice. Beautifully made from dark Tasmanian myrtle, the Combo model includes three bobbins (2 standard 5-ounce and one Jumbo), a flyer with single sliding hook that accommodates all bobbins and a built-in 2-bobbin lazy Kate. (New models now also feature a plug-in socket for the optional pause control.) 

The Roberta weighs only 12 lbs. and is easily transported. Dimensions: 8 1/2"high by 10 1/2" wide and 11" deep. 10-year warranty on the electric motor; one year warranty on everything else.

Options: Carry Bag, Pause Control & choice of single or dual power output (120 volt and 12 volt so you can use your spinner in the car). 

Advantages of the Roberta Electronic Spinner

  1. The flyer brake can remain set for days of use, with no further adjustments being necessary.
  2. There is little need for adjustments to the bobbin speed or tension settings regardless of how big the diameter of the bobbin grows in size.
  3. The electronic design ensures whatever performance is set on the controls, it will continue to stay that way regardless of how hard you hold back in drafting. The electronics also protects the motor from wear and tear.
  4. More yarn control.
    • A speed control on the driven bobbin for the twist rate. 
    • More or less brake on free turning flyer, will regulate the draw-in rate. 
    • You can change the overall degree of hold back in the drafting against the pull, to create a different yarn.
  5. Good results are still possible even with irregular drafting, because of the ability of free turning flyer to change its speed. This makes it self regulating for creating an even yarn.
  6. Long lasting motor. Protected from any damage by the electronics design. Motor guarantee is for 10 years.
  7. The working bobbin is quick and easy to remove.
  8. High speed plying is possible without any hard treadling work.
  9. No top equipment changes are necessary to create different types of yarns. Makes thin lace yarn through to heavy rug yarn, easily.
  10. Use the optional pause control to maintain both hands on the fiber.
  11. Variable motor speed not necessary because of the automatically changing speed of the flyer when you hold back against the pull.
  12. For maximum portability, use the 12 volt dual power input with the auxiliary cable. This cable can go to a car cigarette lighter fitting, rechargeable 12-volt power pack, or small solar panel.
  13. Uses only the power of a household light bulb.
  14. The Roberta is light and portable.
