Item details

Now you can buy Walnut Farm Design's support spindle and bowl with instructions but without the added cost of fiber. This spindle is simple, strong and sturdy and my 'go-to' spindle for spinning anywhere. With a length of 11", it is the perfect size.

I do not recommend a support spindle for an absolute beginner. These are definitely my favorite spindles to use, but a top whorl drop spindle is what a beginner should learn on.

This spindle does have a groove at the top, so that it can be used as a drop spindle as well with a half-hitch.

A supported spindle is easier on your shoulders and arms, and because you can easily use it on your lap, it is great to use while watching tv, and easy to take it with you when traveling!

You receive:

-spindle and bowl are 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 groove at the top for your leader to set in and it is sanded smooth to a tapering point at the end so that it spins easily in any dish or hard surface

-Easy to follow instructions with pictures

Comes from a pet-free, smoke free home and made with care to spread the joy and love of spinning your own fiber!

Still trying to get the hang of the supported spindle. I've been using drop spindles. I like it so far!
