PLEASE NOTE: This spindle is slightly unlevel. It's still perfectly useable, but it has a slight wobble when it's spun. For this reason, the price is reduced from the usual fossil spindle price of £30 to £25.
Resin top-whorl spindle with a selection of real ammonite fossils embedded in the whorl. These fossils were collected by me along the famous Jurassic coastline at Charmouth in Dorset. Pyritised ammonites such as these aren't easy to find, it can take a whole morning to collect enough for a fossil spindle, so the price of this is a bit higher than our standard spindles. The spindle has a walnut wood shaft, which complements the colour of the fossils perfectly. The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 27g. The handmade hook is in a swan-neck style, which balances the yarn properly above the centre of the spindle. Long shaft, so you can fit plenty of yarn on this spindle.
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 28cm.
