Resin top-whorl spindle with a real fern frond (Lady Fern / <i>Athyrium felix-femina</i>) embedded in the whorl. The spindle has an ash wood shaft. The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 26g. 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. 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 diameter is approx 6cm.
Shaft length is approx 28cm.
PLEASE NOTE: This spindle is slightly unlevel. It's still perfectly useable, but it has a slight shimmy when it's spun. For this reason, the price is reduced from the usual £25 to £20.
