In 1969, the Schacht Spindle Company was founded to produce the humblest of fiber arts tools – the Drop Spindle. After 50 years, and 5 iterations, the company has become one of the leading manufacturers of spinning tools and accessories.
Their signature Hi-Lo Spindle is the perfect spinning companion, offering versatile functionality. Crafted from durable hard maple, these spindles feature a brass hook for high-whorl spinning and a grooved shaft for low-whorl spinning. With a compact size of 4″ and weighing 3 ounces, they provide a balanced and comfortable spinning experience.
To use a drop spindle, simply attach your fiber to the hook or notch at the top of the spindle shaft. With a flick of your wrist, give the spindle a gentle spin in the desired direction. As the spindle rotates, the twist travels up the length of the fiber, creating yarn. Adjust the speed of the spin and the amount of twist applied to achieve the desired thickness and tension of your yarn. Experiment with different fiber types and spinning techniques to unleash your creativity and achieve the yarn characteristics you desire.
Experience the joy and versatility of spinning with the Hi-Lo Spindle. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced spinner, the Hi-Lo Spindle is the perfect companion for your spinning journey.
