** Please note, this spindle is a little unbalanced. It has a slight wobble, not really enough to prevent the spindle from being very useable, but the price is reduced to reflect the imperfection. Normally £25, reduced to £20.
Resin top-whorl spindle with a selection of real heather blossoms embedded in the whorl (one sprig each of our local species: Ling, Cross-Leaved Heath and Bell Heathers). The spindle has a walnut wood shaft. The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 27g. The handmade silver plated 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 5.5cm.
Shaft length is approx 28cm.
