SECONDS - This spindle has a bit of a wobble and some minor scratches on the whorl. It's still perfectly useable and very pretty, but the price is reduced to reflect the imperfection. Normal price: £30, reduced to £25.
Resin top-whorl spindle with a real cow parsley blossom in the whorl. The spindle has a cherry wood shaft, which is 23cm long. The resin whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 27g. 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 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.
Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm.
Shaft length is approx 23cm.
