Schacht 50th Anniversary Special Edition Cherry Matchless Spinning Wheel - £1,395.00
PRE-ORDERS NOW BEING TAKEN
To celebrate Schacht's 50th anniversary they will be releasing a special edition of the Matchless in cherry wood. The wheels will be laser engraved and badged with a commemorative emblem to mark the occasion. These wheels will be an even more striking piece of wood craft than the standard Matchless and of course, is a stunning wheel to spin on.
The Cherry Matchless will be available for a limited time through 2019 while stocks last. The first wheels will ship in February and then on a rolling basis through the year whilst quantities are produced. We recommend placing orders early to avoid any potential disappointment. The wheel will sell for £1,395 and you can pre-order by paying a 10% deposit (£139.50) with the balance due prior to shipping from the factory.
UPDATE 8/11/18 - due to high levels of interest the initial run of wheels are already allocated to customers and the earliest shipping date for new pre-orders of Cherry Matchless wheels is May 2019
Please note that the photo shown is of the 2013 45th Anniversary Matchless. The exact appearance of the 50th Anniversary wheel may vary from this. We will update this image as soon as Schacht provide us with a photo of the 2019 production wheel.
Included with each Matchless wheel: 4 cherry wood bobbins, fast and medium speed cherry whorls, a threading hook, a tensioned, collapsible Lazy Kate again in cherry, and a carrying strap.
The Schacht Matchless Spinning Wheel offers double drive, Scotch tension, and bobbin-lead modes of operation - all on one wheel. Wheels come with two flyer whorls (medium and fast); four additional flyer whorls offer spinning ratios from 4:1 to 21:1.
