Huh? Schacht Cherry Matchless?

Look what followed me home from Estes Park Wool Market this year:

I was really proud of myself.  I had only bought $18.00 worth of yak and was about to leave.  Then I walked by Susan’s Fiber Shop and saw the wheel.  Before I knew what I was doing, I had asked to try it and then it was done.  It spun so well!  I have a Schacht Matchless in maple that I am not really all that fond of.  I gave the maple one to the baby last year so I probably needed to get another, right?  Plus, Susan was a sweetie and gave me $100 off which is awesome. (Btw, I love Susan’s Fiber Shop. She is so generous with her time and really knows her stuff.)

I lovvvee the changes they made to the Matchless wheels.  I also love the painted black orifice hook. :)  The new scotch tension is so responsive.  Wonderful wheel!

I leave you with the grain that melted my heart!

This is a very dark wheel.

I mean, leave a wheel with that grain? No way!
