Resin Support Spindle - Narcissus
We are closed until January 2021 for Maternity Leave and won’t be processing orders during this time. In the meanwhile, you are welcome to browse the shop and we look forward to seeing you again in 2021.
**Please note: The whorl on this spindle has a few minor imperfections on the surface of the resin (see third photo). They're only small and don't affect the spindle's performance in any way (it spins beautifully), but the price is reduced from our usual £27.50 to £25 to reflect the imperfection.
This robust yet swift-spinning support spindle is ideally suited to spinning fine yarns. The dome shaped whorl is cast from resin and includes a real preserved narcissus flower. The shaft is made from carbon fibre, which is strong yet slightly flexible, and has been hand shaped to form points at either end. The total weight of the spindle is 22g. Whorl diameter is approximately 5cm. Shaft length is approx 25cm.
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.
This spindle is supplied with a robust custom-made shipping container, which also acts as a handy carrying case for later.
