Hi-Lo Drop Spindles

Want to try out hand spinning but not ready to commit to a spinning wheel? A drop spindle will allow you to learn the basics of drafting, twist, and plying! These drop spindles feature Schacht's high-quality construction with some great features! Use them with the whorl at the top or at the bottom. Three size/weight options give you a variety of spinning options. (Note: For our Beginning Spinning classes we use the 3" 2.2 ounce spindles.) The Hi-Lo spindles are all made of solid maple. 

If you are local, we encourage you to consider signing up for one of our Beginning Spinning classes! Your drop spindle is included in the cost of the class!

3" spindles are generally kept in-stock for immediate shipping. All other sizes are drop-shipped as outlined below.

Please note: This item will be drop-shipped directly to you from Schacht. In addition to the retail price + tax you will also be charged Schacht's shipping rate and handling fee. (If you are ordering a spinning wheel or additional accessories we will work with Schacht to bundle things together to save on shipping/handling as much as possible!) Once we send your order information to Schacht we will contact you with your estimated ship date and to collect shipping/handling. To place your order, or if you have any questions, please call the shop at 804-594-5849 during regular business hours (Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 am - 5:00 pm Eastern time) or send us an email at
