Learn to spin without the major investment of purchasing a spinning wheel! This drop spindle is easy to use, lightweight, and super portable. Learning to spin is easy with this handmade, maple, top whirl spindle. This "learn to spin" kit is perfect for beginners and advanced spinners alike and it makes a wonderful gift! Also great for teaching!
Your kit comes with a beautiful top whorl spindle handcrafted at a small, American fiber arts company in Illinois! The spindle is 9 inches long with a 2-inch whorl and has been sanded smooth for ease of spinning! The spindle also has a notched whorl to help keep your yarn in place and is very lightweight at only 1 ounce!
Also included in your kit is 4 ounces of easy to spin unbleached white Shetland wool roving -- one of the season's most popular wools! This roving is ready to spin, easy to draft, and very soft and springy! The Shetland wool in this kit comes from sheep that are considered by the Livestock Conservancy to be a "recovering" but still endangered sheep breed. The fiber is fun and easy to spin!
Along with your spindle and roving, you will be emailed a PDF set of instructions on how to spin with your spindle. The instructions include links to videos online as well as links to online written instructions on how to create your own handspun yarn.
I love my new spindle and fiber! They're beautiful!

I didn't expect the promised instructions to be just links to some youtube videos by someone other than the seller, as well as a link to another business' website who sell spindles and had instructions included in the website for their spindles. I could have looked that up for myself, and viewing youtube videos eats up data. It would have been better to just say that instructions were not included. The spindle and roving were fine, though.
