We are closed until January 2021 for Maternity Leave and won’t be processing orders during this time. In the meanwhile, you are welcome to browse the shop and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

An extra-lightweight resin top-whorl spindle with a real daisy blossom in the whorl. The whorl is in our slimline 'saucer' style design, which is lighter than our standard whorls, making the spindle perfect for spinning fine yarns.  The spindle has a walnut wood shaft.  The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 18g.  The spindle has a walnut wood shaft, which at 20cm is much shorter than our usual spindle shafts, meaning that you can easily use the spindle while sitting in a chair, and also helps to reduce the weight even further.  This little spindle would be lovely for spinning super-fine lace yarns, from silk or other luxury fibres.

The resin whorl is notched to the back of the hook. 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 for longest life without yellowing, we recommend that you store your spindle away from direct sunlight.

Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm.

Shaft length is approx 23cm.
