Monarch Spinning Wheel
The Monarch is SpinOlution's production studio wheel for professional spinners who need a comfortable wheel that they can spin at for hours.
This is the wheel I use, along with the electric firefly wheel. I can share the flyer heads between both wheels. You truly can pump out yarns comfortably with these wheels. I highly recommend getting the Studio Package deal to get the lazy kate and skein winder and multiple bobbin sizes. It is listed separately in my shop.
WHAT IS A MODULAR WHEEL? The 8 oz, 16 oz, 32 oz, and 64 oz setup are interchangeable between the Monarch and the Firefly. Design your own wheel by choosing your base and setup size, or swap setups between the bases for multiple wheel options. I would say the 64 oz bobbin is best suited for the firefly. It's pretty heavy to treadle but it does fit into the Monarch.
Here is a video showcasing the modular system & different bobbin sizes:
The Monach is a heavier wheel. It weighs about 30 lbs. It does fit nicely into a seat belt for travel. The echo is half the weight & there are several other Spinolution wheels that are better suited for travel.
Note the wheel does not come engraved. I have a separate listing for the engraving upgrade here:
