Schacht Sidekick Folding Spinning Wheel

The Travel Spinning Wheel

The Schacht Sidekick Folding Spinning Wheel is a durable, fully functional, lightweight, and portable spinner that can easily be folded and offers comfortable spinning with its orifice height and long treadles. With this spinning wheel, you can create beautiful spun yarns wherever you may be. 

The Schacht Sidekick is available without a flyer if you already own a Schacht Ladybug, Matchless, or Flatiron as all these Schacht spinning wheels use the same flyer, bobbin, and whorls.
