“The flat-packed Schacht”
The Flatiron Spinning Wheel rises from a flat-packed box much like Boulder’s iconic Flatirons tilted up from a once horizontal position. Feel the majesty of this rock-solid wheel when you sit down to spin. The elegant design of the formed maple, apple-ply body calls upon the same drama that makes the Flatirons so striking. This unique Saxony style wheel is anything but traditional, much like it’s home of Boulder, CO.

The Flatiron, with its brilliant, compact packaging can be shipped anywhere with ease! With nearly all the tools necessary for assembly in the box, you can set this wheel up in just a few hours.
It is customizable, with the option to have the flyer on the left or the right. With self-aligning bearings in the maidens, and completely adjustable drive wheel, the Flatiron system is sure to spin true. The ingenious quick-release lever makes switching bobbins hassle-free.
The Flatiron can be set up in all three tensioning systems combined with Schacht’s thoughtfully-designed fine threaded tension control. All of Schacht’s current whorls can be used with the Flatiron, allowing you to spin the yarns of your dreams–from frog’s-hair fine to art yarn.
