Resin top-whorl spindle with a real passion flower 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 25g. 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: I made a mistake while polishing this spindle and got some light scratches on the underside of the whorl. I'm cross with myself because the spindle is otherwise perfect! The third photo shows the scratches. I've reduced the price to reflect the imperfection from £30 to £25.
Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm.
Shaft length is approx 23cm.
