Item details

Learn to spin on these beautifully handturned drop spindle kits made from wood coppiced from the woodland on my smallholding in beautiful West Wales.

The spindle is made from Ash wood on a pine dowel, and is 300 mm long. It weighs approximately 40g and is provided in a high gloss beeswax finish.

The Kit consists of a light or dark coloured drop spindle and 100g of mixed 2 colour roving to get you started on the creative road to spinning. There is also a "Fibre only / Additional fibre option" available to purchase the fibre only (without a drop spindle) or to add more fibre to your kit.
For that extra special gift a boxed presentation kit is available on our other listing below.


PLEASE NOTE : """"" These spindles work as both top and bottom whorl (see picture 4). """""

The spindle is beautiful and easy to use. The fiber is also very fun to work with 😊 Perfect for a begginer like me

The spindle is absolutely beautiful!! The wood has a gorgeous colour and finish and a great weight to it. I had never spun thread before purchasing this item so I didn’t want to spend too much money - I felt this was a great price and actually think of this as an investment!! I started making my own thread after learning for a bout 3 days the correct technique and getting to know my fibre qualities etc. Honestly the best new hobby I have ever started so thank you for giving me the perfect tool ✨
