Worker Bee

Item Description

The Worker Bee was debut in 2017 after spinners around the world requested a foldable Bee style wheel with a larger bobbin. The difference between the Queen Bee, King Bee, and Worker Bee is the ratio range and bobbin size. The Queen Bee holds 4 oz bobbins. The King Bee holds 8 oz bobbins. The Worker Bee holds 16 oz bobbins as well as 8 oz bobbins and can fit in a carry on suitcase for flying around the world. 

The Worker Bee is the perfect wheel for the spinner who needs effortless portability with a wide ratio range. The speeds are adequate for extra fine (1:26) to bulky (1:4) spinning - and the bobbin size is large enough for creative textures and embellishments to be included in your spinning. 

Since it's debut, the Worker Bee has always included Golden Whorl engineering. With Golden Whorl engineering you have 30% less flyer drag, which makes spinning short staple fibers a breeze.
