PLA is a plant based plastic, and is available in many colors. We use silk PLA which gives the Spin-e-Kube its’ metallic appearance.The main yoke of the flyer is 3d printed, but the center of the flyer is a copper shaft, with a 1/2 inch orifice. This is perfect for most knitting and crochet size yarns. The Flyer arms are made of wood. There are 4 PLA hooks included.End Supports/ Maidens are 3d Printed PLA plastic with sealed bearings to prevent wear.Each machine has 3 included bobbins,Each bobbin holds about 8 oz of spun fiber. The center shaft is made from CPVC and glued to the PLA. By securely attaching the PLA spinner parts to a sturdy wood base we minimize the wheel travelling or vibrating. This is also accomplished by the rubber feet on the bottom. This ensures a smooth spin and prevents the wheel from “walking” off the table. 1 year limited warranty included. Optional Accessories – A battery pack,foot switch, wood care, and carry case can be found separately on amazon.
