Item details

Walnut Farm Design's Beginner's Drop Spindle Kit includes everything you need to learn to use a drop spindle! It is easy, fast, fun and best of all.....the best low cost way to spin your own yarn!

The kit includes: a drop spindle w/ leader string attached, 2 oz of 100% fine Polwarth handdyed fiber perfect for spinning or 100% fine Polwarth undyed (your choice), and an easy to follow instruction sheet with pictures! The directions also include links to youtube videos for the 'park and draft' method of drop spindling, how to ply on a drop spindle, and how to finish your yarn! I include these links because I am a visual learner!

Learning to drop spindle before moving on to using a spinning wheel is a must! I am an impatient person and did not want to learn how to use a spindle before I hopped right on a spinning wheel, but it is an invaluable first step to learn how to draft, and learn how the yarn twists. It was much more fun, easier, and quicker than I had imagined. It's easy to do it while watching tv, and easy to take it with you when traveling!

I chose fine Polwarth combed top to include in my beginner spindle kits because Polwarth is a fine, soft wool with a longer staple length than merino wool. A longer staple length fiber is easier to learn on and Polwarth makes a nice, strong singles yarn if you choose not to ply it. I've added the choice of undyed Polwarth wool, because occasionally I have a request for undyed wool, and dyeing always makes wool a little bit more coarse.

-spindle is unfinished wood and can be stained or painted to make it your own!
-whorl is 2 1/2" in diameter
-shaft is 11" long and finished with a brass plated hook
-fiber is 2 oz of hand-dyed fine Polwarth wool
-spindle weight is 1.7oz

Top whorl spindles are easiest for beginners to learn on.

My home is pet-free and smoke free home and made with care to spread the joy and love of spinning your own fiber!

These are in stock and ship quickly.
