Item details

The Clay Sheep Drop Spindle - Bright Orange Swirl Top Whorl Drop Spindle (No 249) - Small .97 oz


The Clay Sheep Spindles are made with Red Oak wood, custom handcrafted polymer clay swirls, sterling silver filled wire accents, Argentium Silver hard tempered wire hooks, with a hand rubbed tung oil finish.

They are rim weighted (the majority of the weight is towards the outer edge), balanced, spin really smooth & for a good long time.

They come in 3 sizes - Small, approx. 1oz - Medium, approx. 1.5oz - Large, approx. 2oz
(Each individual spindle weight is listed in the title & first line of description.)
Choosing the weight of your spindle can be confusing & leaves a lot to personal preference. You can spin almost any type of yarn on any spindle, it just takes effort & skill. However, I think some spindles are better suited for certain types of fiber & weights of yarn. My general guideline is this:
Small - thin yarns, laceweight, fingering & possibly sport weight
Medium - medium weight yarns from sport weight to worsted weight
Large - thick yarns from worsted weight, bulky & art type yarns, also good for plying

Each one is completely handcrafted with a lot of love, effort & care, not a lot of fancy tools. :) They are all numbered & signed by me on the underside of the whorl.

CUSTOM COLORS: Feel free to contact me about having a drop spindle made with a custom color. What is a custom color? Any color that I do not have in the store stock at this time. There is no extra charge for a color request. However there will be a $10 charge for every revision to the original color request, because I will have to start over & create a whole new whorl every time.
