Lightweight Resin Drop Spindle - Black and Ivory
A hand turned lightweight resin top-whorl spindle with a beautiful disk-shaped whorl in black (above) and ivory (underneath). The whorl is in our new lathe-turned style, which is light and perfectly balanced, making the spindle perfect for spinning fine yarns. The spindle has a birch wood shaft. The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 25g.
The handmade hook is in a swan-neck style, made from strong steel, which balances the yarn properly above the centre of the spindle. The shaft is 23cm long. 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 is approx 6cm across and 0.8cm thick. Shaft length is approx 23cm.
