Sound Levels, Clamping Options, and Yarn Spun by the Mini

Hello Everyone!

A lot of people have been asking what the EEW Mini sounds like and how loud is it.  I put together a video to show that.  The video also covers a few different ways to hold the Mini in place while spinning.

I've also been asked for examples of yarn that has been spun by the Mini.  Here are some photos from the Mini beta testers.

 If you're looking for more photos or higher resolution photos of the yarn from the Mini check out this page.

Hope you enjoyed this update on the Mini.  Please let me know if you have any requests for future videos or ideas on how to make the Mini better.

      Fleebers, the inner diameter of the bobbins is 0.7 inches and their length is 3 inches. It depends on the Lazy Kate on whether they would fit.

      Great update, thanks!

      Question: what is the bobbin opening diameter? Will they fit on a standard Lazy Kate

      Yup! We should all thank the testers for their great photos!
