Resin top-whorl spindle with a single real chicken feather in the whorl, shed naturally by one of our own bantam cockerels. The spindle has an ash 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 28g. 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.
