Resin top-whorl spindle with sprigs of real ling heather in the whorl. The spindle has a walnut wood shaft, which at 23cm is somewhat shorter than our usual spindle shafts, meaning that you can easily use the spindle while sitting in a chair. The resin whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 26g. 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 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 23cm.
