Our first snow has fallen in Boulder and November is well on its way. Meaning: the holidays are just around the corner.
We all know that finding the perfect gift for your fiber enthusiast can be a challenge. However, all of us in the Schacht office can offer suggestions–because we want all of these things too! Here is a simple (non-comprehensive) gift guide from us to you! Find all of these Schacht favorites at your local dealer.

Drop spindles are an affordable and and simple way to explore the magical craft of spinning fluff into yarn. Our 3″ Hi-Lo Drop spindle is the perfect beginner spindle ($21.00).
