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.

Wheel Cart can be added to any Matchless wheel (sorry, it doesn’t work with the Ladybug).

Collapsible Lazy Kate tensioned lazy kate is easy to take apart and put together – no tools needed!  The best for handling bobbins when plying.  Both Standard and Bulky Bobbins will fit!
