      Comments about Schacht Hi-Lo Spindles:

      This is a beautiful spindle. I asked my husband to add an extra notch so that it would be easier for me to use and it is much better even though it looks like I've defiled it. It's functionality is improved.

        Comments about Schacht Hi-Lo Spindles:

        I had never spun before and this is a great beginners spindle. I used it as to whorl only and dropped it plenty of times and it was attacked by my cat several times and so it is durable. My only recommendation for a beginner is maybe to also get a lighter weight spindle. I quickly spun thin yarn and now I wish I had a lighter weight one. Anyway I'm completely happy with this one and I recommend it.

          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.

                        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.
