The Ladybug Spinning Wheel is friendly to entry-level spinners, easy to treadle, easy to take with you, and…as cute as a bug! 

The Ladybug has the characteristic solid Schacht construction and its unique design is both functional and charming. 

Designed-in carrying handles in the legs and light weight make the Ladybug easy to pick up and transport. An optional attached tensioned Lazy Kate integrates into the front leg and makes it easy to take along, too!

The Ladybug Spinning Wheel uses Scotch tension, and can also be used in double drive mode. 

The Ladybug comes with medium and fast flyer whorls; the slow and high speed whorls (purchased separately) can also be used for a wide range of ratios.

Included with each Schacht Ladybug Spinning Wheel are a poly drive band, threading hook, three bobbins, medium and fast whorls, and double drive band. Each Ladybug Spinning Wheel is unique - somewhere on your wheel is your very own Ladybug pal.

NOTE: Schacht has now made their Travelling Wheel, The Sidekick, to accept the flyer and bobbins from the Ladybug or Matchless! The Sidekick can then be purchased at a lower cost if you do not need the flyer and bobbins. 

The Ladybug also made the Mondaes "Travelling Wheels" category, from it's ease of transport due to the cut-in handles, stability in transport when buckled into a car, and its ability to stay tuned up from location to location. The Ladybug does not fold and is not easily transported on airlines unless it is disassembled.
