Hi, Welcome to Traditions Fiber Arts and Antiques. My Ashford products are all new in the box or package, unless specified otherwise. I am an avid spinner and love exploring different fibers, mixing fibers, spinning novelty yarns and experimenting with natural and other dyes and dying methods.
The Ashford student drop spindle is perfect for anyone to use to learn to spin on a drop spindle. Wool roving to use with the drop spindle is included. There are many U tube videos to use for learning to spin with the drop spindle if you do not have someone to show you how to use it. I have taught a fiber arts class to second grade students using these drop spindles. They work great. Some of the second grade students caught on well, but think a year older and up would be better! I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchses when feasible. Please email me before paying so I may invoice you with combined shipping prices. thanks, Judy
