Our Saxony-style wheel combines an enduring sense of history with state-of-the-art woodworking techniques. 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 comes with 3 bobbins, 2 whorls, a Schacht-Reeves kate, and a Schacht-Reeves threading hook. See the Specs tab for spinning ratios.

A 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.

After you've placed your order you will be contacted for the balance of any shipping costs and your order will be placed with the manufacturer. Please note that lead times on products range from 4-6 weeks as looms and wheels are most often built on demand.
