Item details

This listing is for ONE drop spindle, either top or bottom whorl (you will have to choose when you check out). If you would like more than one spindle, change the quantity in your cart. If you would like fiber to go with your spindle, please check out my beginner drop spindle kits here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KittyMineCrafts?section_id=14077639

These are very basic spindles, GREAT for beginning spinners. You will receive a spindle made from hard maple wood with a beech shaft, finished with Danish oil, and lacquer. They are 10" long, have a 2.5" whorl, and weigh 1.8 ounces.

When choosing top whorl or bottom whorl, there are a few things to keep in mind. A top whorl spindle will spin faster. A bottom whorl spindle will generally spin longer. Both can be used to make singles and ply your yarns. The type of spindle you choose will be a personal preference, and everyone swears by one or the other. There are no spinning police - choose what you think would work best for you.

I recently uploaded a tutorial on drop spindling on YouTube! Check it out here:

FAQs

I am always happy to help with custom orders. I cannot color match, but I do well with concepts (i.e. I want blues and greens, think mermaid) and photo inspirations. Just send me a private message and we can work out the details!

The spindle shaft is very smooth so it doesn't catch any fibers and it spins for a long time.

Very fast shipping! The quality of the finish is excellent, though my spinning is not (yet). Thank you!
