This is the new 4-Way Multi-Spindle. By adjusting the hub ring, it can be used as as top-whorl drop spindle, a bottom-whorl drop spindle, a traditional supported spindle, or a quill supported spindle. It can be used for long-staple fibers such as wool or alpaca, or very short-staple fibers such as cotton or camel. It can easily accommodate your every need.
The weight of the spindle can be controlled by the choice of whorl beads. The spindles can be operated with 2, 3, 4 or 6 whorl beads to fine tune the performance and weight for a specific task. Whorl beads give the whorl an effective diameter of 3 inches, for long spin times. The spindles are approximately 8.5 inches (21.6 cm) long and weigh (with the hub) approximately 3.8 grams (carbon fiber), and 9.5 grams (3/16" brass). (There are minor weight and length variations between spindles because they are cut and ground by hand.)
Whorl beads (in sets of 3), quill bases, and large and small support bowls are all sold separately.

I LOVE this spindle! I've played with it constantly since it came in. Perfect weight and the beads make it spin amazingly. Since the rubber whorl hub can been moved, I've tried it out as a top whorl and as a bottom whorl spindle. They both work great!
I've used it in the quill base as a supported spindle AND as a drop spindle. I've run out of fiber to spin I play with it so much!
Drisanna was a delight to buy from. Great communication and super fast delivery! Would definitely recommend her and her spindle to anyone interested in getting into spinning! Thanks for the great product!
