      Comments about Schacht Hi-Lo Spindles:

      Very pretty spindle. The whorl has a pretty curve shape on the top and is nicely polished. It gives off a kind of shine when you spin it. Very pretty. I own 2 other handmade spindles, but this one's wood work is better than both of those. It's very balanced when spun, and the long shaft holds a lot of yarn.

                I'm not a spinner but I would like to learn to spin.
                This device looked so nice that I decided to buy it.
                Just because it looks beautiful.
                Maybe sometime I will learn to spin.
                Well made spindle.

                  I just bought this about a month ago. i am a brand new spinner and found it quite easy to teach myself on. It works well for both fine and thick yarns.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The shipping was fast, but my spindle arrived with the dowel poking out of the box and could have gotten damaged.

                    Comments about Schacht Hi-Lo Spindles:

                    This is my first ever spindle, and it works great! I like that I could try out both the high and the low whorl configurations. The 4" whorl has a nice, long spin, but it's a little too heavy for spinning very fine singles. All in all, I don't think I'll need another spindle for a looong while. I love this thing!

                      My materials came quickly, well packed, and clearly marked. I was excited to use this spindle which had all of the markings I had researched. The balance is good either as a top or bottom spindle, the hook is a great size and shape, notch is just right, wood is smooth, and the whorl is the perfect size for me. This spindle has been a joy to work with on my first venture out into the world of spinning. What an excellent find and a great value.

                          I bought this spindle because I was interested in beginning to spin yarn and I was not disappointed. I do wish that I had known what the different weights of the spindle meant. Ie. Finer yarns come from lighter spindles. All in all a great gateway spinning tool.

                                its a good solid, evenly weighted and spinning spindle.
