SPINNING: Schacht Spinning Wheels
Castle style, the most elaborately engineered of the spinning wheels
available today. All choices have been included. It has a double-drive,
and a scotch tension. Itís entirely ambidextrous, both from the spinnerís
point-of view, and the yarnís (S-twist, Z-twist). It goes slow, or very
fast. Itís a modern stripped-down sort of design, with pretty walnut and
maple steam-bent laminations. Solid and stable in operation, very easy
to carry, especially with the help of a Spinning Cart.
Schacht Wheels come with a threading hook, a carrying strap, an Industrious
Kate (with built-in tensioner, hold three bobbins) and two pulleys (medium
and fast). Essentially ready to use right out of the box, all wood is finished.
There are two wheels, single- and double-treadle. And two bobbins, one (the
regular) with a choice of four pulleys or whorls, one with three (the high-speed),
for an exceptionally wide range of speeds.
