The Schacht-Reeves Spinning Wheel is a Saxony-style wheel designed with state-of-the-art woodworking techniques and an enduring sense of history . Designed in conjunction with Rick and Marge Reeves, the Schacht-Reeves wheel carries on the tradition of their famous spinning wheels.
The Schacht-Reeves wheel is available in 30″ models, as a double- or single-treadle wheel, in ash or cherry. Order your wheel with flyer on the left or right.
Each wheel includes:
- 3 bobbins
- 2 whorls
- 1 Lazy Kate
- 1 threading hook
Note on Bobbins: The Schacht-Reeves flyer shaft is 5/16″ in diameter versus the original Reeves 1/4″ diameter. This means that the current Schacht bobbins can’t be used on Reeves-made wheels. Replacement wooden bobbins for older Reeves spinning wheels can be ordered from Hill Creek Fiber Studio, (800) 874-9328.
