This gently used wheel has been our go to sample here in the studio and at shows. She has ridden very nicely in the trailer and in the car to and from shows. And she has given many a beginning spinner a glimpse of what spinning on a wonderful wheel is like.
The Ladybug Spinning Wheel is friendly to entry-level spinners, easy to treadle, easy to take with you, and…as cute as a bug! The Ladybug has the characteristic solid Schacht construction and its unique design is both functional and charming. Designed-in carrying handles in the legs and light weight make the Ladybug easy to pick up and transport. An optional attached tensioned Lazy Kate integrates into the front leg and makes it easy to take along, too!
The Ladybug Spinning Wheel can be used in double drive mode or in Scotch tension. The Ladybug comes with medium and fast flyer whorls; the extra slow, slow, high, and super high speed whorls can also be used for a wide range of ratios and are available separately.
Included with each Schacht Ladybug Spinning Wheel are a poly drive band, threading hook, three bobbins, medium and fast whorls, and double drive band. Each Ladybug Spinning Wheel is unique - somewhere on your wheel is your very own Ladybug pal.
Both of us at Sky Loom Weavers have this wheel. Each of ours has a bulky flyer and bobbin that we use for wild fun and funky yarn and to ply onto. It works beautifully for either job.
