£25.00

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.

This support spindle is ideally suited to spinning fine to medium weight yarns.  The whorl is cast from epoxy resin, with a real viola flower, on a blue background, with a sprinkling of shimmery mica powder in the blue part.  The whorl has been shaped and balanced on a lathe to make a spindle that spins very smoothly.  The 6mm shaft is made from ash wood, and has been hand shaped to form points at either end.  The total weight of the spindle is 38g.  Whorl diameter is approximately 5cm.  Shaft length is approx 23cm.

The resin used for the spindle whorl contains a UV protectant, however for longest life without colour changes, 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.
