Lightweight Resin Support Spindle - Snowdrop
This speedy little spindle is ideally suited to spinning fine yarns. The disc-shaped whorl is cast from resin and includes real preserved snowdrop blossom. 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 22g. Whorl diameter is approximately 6cm. Shaft length is approx 25cm.
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.
This spindle is supplied with a robust custom-made shipping container, which also acts as a handy carrying case for later.
