Made of laminated woods, the Ladybug from Schacht is lighter weight than the Schacht Matchless but still durable and flexible. Designed as a single-drive wheel with a stretchy band, the Ladybug can be converted to a double drive by switching drive bands and using the drive band tensioner built into the wheel.
The Schacht Ladybug specifications:
- Wheel diameter: 16"
- Orifice diameter: 3/8"
- Orifice Height: 27"
- Weight 12.5 pounds
- Ratios: 6.5, 8, 9, and 10.5:1
- Includes 3 travel bobbins (with plastic flanges), hook, drive band for double drive.
Open the box, take out the wheel, and be ready to spin in just a few minutes. Options available include the lazy kate and additional whorls, one slower (5 and 6:1) and one faster (14 and 16:1).
