Highlights of the Roberta

Accessories    Testimonials

"The Roberta" often referred to as the Rolls Royce in electronic spinners. Spin with ease whether you're a beginner or professional. Originally designed for the use among the disabled/handicapped because of its design and not having to be powered by foot. Beginners have no need to worry about hand and foot coordination and can concentrate on the true art of spinning, the drafting and getting to know the fiber.

The "Roberta" has a 10-year guarantee on the motor; nowadays having a 10-year warranty on the motor speaks for itself and the product. Not only does the "Roberta" look like a fine piece of furniture its overall design and easy operation makes it one of the top sellers in the United States.

Purchasing a "Roberta" spinner there is no need to ever buy another spinner. Fine to heavy weight yarns all can be done without attachments or add-ons. This spinner does it all!

 Design Features

Irish Brake - the free turning flyer goes hand and hand with the electronic design of this spinner. Good results are possible even with irregular drafting. Because of the changing speed of the free turning flyer it makes it self regulating for making an even yarn. If you pause and hold in the drafting, the free turning flyer will increase until it is the same speed as the bobbin. In this situation nothing will be laid down on the center of the bobbin. The twist continues but the yarn will not break. When you are ready again you can do a long draw to take up additional twist and this will self regulate from your fingers through to the bobbin loading.

Tension Device - this governs the rate of fiber pull in. Because there is no friction drag in the tension groove it never changes with use. No need for adjustments to speed or tension regardless of how big the diameter of the bobbin grows in size. Your settings remain for the same.

On/Off Switch - with a simple flip of a switch located on the front of the spinner you easily start and stop the spinner. A foot control is available which also can control the on/off mode. This can be purchased when you order or can be added on at a later date.

Speed Control - the speed control dial governs the amount of twist you put into your yarn. Once set, it remains the same. This feature offers unbelievable consistency with your yarns.

Combo version - this includes 2 standard bobbins and 1 jumbo. A standard bobbin holds approx. 5 oz of yarn and the jumbo can hold up to 11 oz. This feature offers larger skeins if desired.

Sliding Hook - this controls where your yarn is placed on the bobbin. The o-ring simply slides on the arm of the flyer in either a forward or backward motion. One quick easy step and you control where the yarn is placed.

All in one unit - included with the Roberta is everything you’ll need, from start to finish. Three bobbins, threading hook located on side of spinner and built in lazy kate that holds your spools whether they are stored or being used for plying.

Dual Powered available - for maximum portability the dual power offers the 120V plug in and a 12V plug in with auxiliary cable. You can plug into a cigarette lighter fitting, 12-volt power pack or small solar panel.

* Personal Support - Shady Haven's Fiber Design offers continued support with your spinner. Available on-line or in person if your able to come here. I want you to enjoy and learn your new spinner with ease and I'm there to help with your questions.

 * Testimonials from "Roberta" owners:
"As a beginner I find the "Roberta" easy to use and understand.  There is support help there and Vanessa gets back to me quickly.  I love it and recommend it highly for all levels of spinning!"    Vicki

"After a very frustrating year of trying to learn to spin, I spotted the Roberta at a show.  This was the answer!  Vanessa has been great!  Not only was I able to purchase my Roberta through her but she took the time to make sure I was able to use it without stress and continues to be supportive.  The Roberta is wonderful!  I am actually spinning my fibers and thoroughly enjoying the experience.  We also have beautiful yarn spun by  Vanessa!  Thank you Vanessa for your support!!!"    Jan
