Schacht Wheel Kate, Bobbins & Whorls

Schacht Wheel Kate, Bobbins & Whorls

from 10.95

Keep your Ladybug, Matchless, Sidekick or Flatiron working smoothly as you spin different weight yarns with High Speed and Slow whorls.

WHORLS  Schacht spinning wheels offer a wide spectrum of whorls to aid the handspinner in achieving the best spinning speed for the task at hand. A high speed bobbin is required for high speed and super high speed whorls when spinning in double drive. (High speed bobbins are not required for Scotch tension mode.)

What Whorl Do I Choose?  It depends…on your treadling rate, the fiber you’re spinning, and the type of yarn you want. There are no hard and fast rules about whorls. What is important is that you choose a whorl that helps your wheel do as much of the work for you as possible. In general: the bigger the whorl, the coarser the fiber, the thicker the yarn; the smaller the whorl, the finer the fiber, the smaller the yarn.

What Whorls Do I have?  Each new Schacht wheel comes with a medium and a fast speed whorl. If you don’t know what size whorls you have, download this ruler to help measure your whorls.

Standard Wheel Bobbin is made of hard maple with a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish.   Durable plastic core.   Four ounce capacity.

High Speed Bobbin is made of hard maple with a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish. The High Speed Bobbin can be identified by “HI SPD” written on the small end of the bobbin. Four ounce capacity. The High Speed Bobbin is required when using the high speed and super high speed whorls in double drive.

Bulky Bobbin has double the capacity of standard bobbins. Perfect for plying long skeins, or creating art yarn. The Bulky Bobbin is made of hard maple, with a hand-rubbed Danish oil finish, plastic core.  8 ounce capacity. Compatible Schacht wheels with bulky flyer plyer.

Schacht Collapsible Tensioned Lazy Kate Built low to the ground (no tipping over during plying), has a unique tensioning feature (no more bobbin back-spinning during plying), and accommodates up to three bobbins. It can be easily disassembled, making it easy to transport or pack — no tools required!   The Kate can be used with other spinning wheel bobbins up to 7″ in length.   The rod that holds the bobbin looks to be about 1/4 inch in circumference. 

This Collapsible Lazy Kate is included with the Schacht Matchless wheel.   Highly recommend if you have the Flatiron, Ladybug or Sidekick.  Bobbins are not included. 

Bulky Plyer Flyer. If you already have the bulky flyer on one of your Schacht wheels, you can add just the front maiden and use that flyer on your second Schacht wheel you may have.
