Lightweight Resin Support Spindle - Silverweed
This speedy little spindle is ideally suited to spinning fine yarns. The whorl is cast from resin and includes a sprig of real Silverweed (Argentina anserina). The shaft is made from carbon fibre, which is strong yet slightly flexible, and has been hand shaped to form points at either end. The total weight of the spindle is 20g. Whorl diameter is approximately 5cm. Shaft length is approx 27cm.
The resin used for the spindle whorl contains a UV protectant, however for longest life without yellowing, we recommend that you store your spindle away from direct sunlight.
This spindle is supplied with a robust custom-made shipping container, which also acts as a handy carrying case for later.
