For Schacht’s 50th Anniversary, Felicia Lo of Sweet Georgia Yarns created a colorway called Barry’s Jubilee. It’s 85% Polwarth/ 15% tussah, I know, such a dreamy blend.

As part of their 50th anniversary celebration the folks at Schacht are hosting a spin along during the month of June.

If you sign up for the spin along newsletter you’ll find out all about it. I’m in, and planning on spinning two different yarns with my braid.





Anniversary Matchless



Besides this fabu colorway, Schacht has several special anniversary products.


Everything from an anniversary cherry Matchless,cherry Baby and Mighty Wolf looms, to shuttles, a bag, hat, and an apron.

They’re also having a party on September 20th if you are anywhere near Boulder. I wish I was closer, I’d enter the shuttle race!





Dyed and natural shuttles


The anniversary wheel and loom are out of my budget this year, but I think I need one of the 9″ shuttles for my Cricket.

They have them in natural maple and dyed maple. I think the purple one needs a home with me.
