There are so many brands and types of spinning wheels and they all behave differently and have different characteristics. It’s really a hard decision! I thought I had decided on the Majacraft Rose but then learned that the wood is soft and scuffs and scrapes easily so I decided against that.
Then I decided I wanted the Schacht Matchless. Everyone who has one loves it.
Here’s the good part: I have a friend who has a knitting shop. She has had a few Schacht items in her shop before so I wrote her to see if she could get a Schacht spinning wheel. When you order a Schacht from most shops, the wheel is shipped directly from Schacht, so I figured I’d see if my friend could make the sale. My friend could order one for me but . . she has a Schacht Matchless that she bought a few years back, has only spun a little on and she was willing to sell it at a great price, along with some super accessories. Done! Her Schacht Matchless will be coming to my house real soon and I cannot wait.
