The Schacht Spindle Company started in 1969 by Barry Schacht and his brother Dan after a friend of theirs wanted to learn how to spin. The brothers heard about Greentree Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, where the people there raised sheep and taught spinning. There they learned about the art of drop spindle and with a commission to make 200 of them. After returning to Greentree with the commissioned spindles, they learned about weaving looms and they made their first portable tapestry soon after. 

While the Schacht company started as a drop spindle business, they also make and sell weaving looms and tapestry looms, they sell books on weaving, spinning, dyeing, and fiber arts.

The Woolery is proud to carry Schacht Spindle Company products and we urge you to take a look at our vast collection of their spindles and looms.
