Resin Drop Spindle - Oak Moss (Lichen)


Sold Out

A crystal-clear resin top-whorl spindle with fronds of real lichen (oak moss) in the whorl.  The spindle has a birch wood shaft, which is 23cm long.  The resin whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 29g.  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.

Please note - the fibre in the photo is for demonstration only, it's not included in the sale.

Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm.

Shaft length is approx 23cm.
