SALE: Was £25, now £20. This spindle is slightly bumpy in one area underneath the whorl, where the resin hasn't fully covered the feather. It doesn't affect the balance or functionality of the spindle in any way. The price however is reduced to reflect the cosmetic imperfection.

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.
