Description

print

The Flatiron Spinning Wheel rises from a flat-packed box much like Boulder’s iconic Flatirons tilted up from a once-horizontal position. The elegant design of the formed maple ply body calls upon the same drama that makes the Flatirons so striking. This unique Saxony-style wheel is anything but traditional, much like the Schacht’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado.

The superb Flatiron Spinning Wheel is customizable; you can build it with either the flyer on the left or the right. With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and a fully adjustable drive wheel, the whole system is sure to spin true. The clever quick-release lever makes changing out bobbins trouble-free.

The Flatiron Spinning Wheel can be set up in all three tension systems  (Scotch tension, double drive, and bobbin lead). The Flatiron comes with medium and fast whorls; the extra slow, slow, high, and super high speed whorls can also be used for a wide range of rations.

Included acccessories: poly drive band, threading hook, 3 travel bobbins, medium and fast whorls, and a double drive band.
