** SECONDS ** Please note, this spindle has a small (4-5mm) bump on the underside of the whorl where I accidentally spilled a drop of extra resin while making it. It doesn't affect the clarity or balance of the spindle at all, but I've reduced the price to reflect the imperfection. The last photo shows the bump. Normally £30, reduced to £25.
A crystal-clear resin top-whorl spindle with real viola, daisy and forget-me-not blossoms in the whorl. The spindle has a birch wood shaft, which is 23cm long. The flat resin whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 28g, making it one of our medium weight spindles. The handmade silver plated hook is in a swan-neck style, which balances the yarn properly above the centre of the spindle. Has been test spun to ensure it has good balance.
This spindle is supplied with a robust custom-made shipping container, which also acts as a handy carrying case for later.
The resin used for the whorl contains a UV protectant, however flowers and leaves set in resin will inevitably fade over time. Some think this adds a pretty 'vintage' look to the design. To delay the onset of fading, we recommend that you store your spindle away from direct sunlight.
Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm.
Shaft length is approx 23cm.
