After much demand, finessing by the designer, and testing by the Turtle Horde, we can now present to you our 10" top whorl spindle. There is a channel notch and a pointed tip at the bottom. Choose your shaft color, then choose which round whorl you want. You'll have to include the whorl COLOR in the notes to seller box when you're checking out as etsy only offers the two drop variations in drop down menu form.
Shaft length 10"
Triquetra whorl 3" in diameter and .5" in height. Assembled 1.3 ounce, 36 grams Danger Zone whorl 3.25" in diameter and .5" in height. Assembled 1.4 ounce, 41 grams Atomic Flower whorl 3.25" in diameter and .5" in height. Assembled 1.3 ounce, 38 grams Spiderweb whorl 3.25" in diameter and .5" in height. Assembled 1.4 ounce, 41 grams
A couple of things to be aware of;
The Triquetra whorl is slightly lighter and causes a bit of wobble when the spindle is empty. The Danger Zone and the Atomic Flower whorls, being slightly heavier, spin much smoother when the spindle is empty.
These spindles are made from PLA, which may soften in high heat. A warm sunny day outside is fine, but a closed car, even on a cloudy day, or on top of a radiator, might be a problem. If you wouldn’t leave chocolate there, maybe think twice about leaving your spindle there.
When storing your spindle for any length of time in a warm environment, don't store it in the upright position sitting on the tip because of possible warping of the shaft.
This spindle is amaze balls. It spins so fast and well. Excellent quality printed. Love the tapered end and the built in notch at top that acts as hook. Love that!! Has become my spindle of choice for a big project I am doing. (If there is any product feedback it is to note that the top notch is other handed to what I am used to. I overcame it. :). )

This review is late because I got it so fast. The package arrived before the expected arrival date and I couldn't review it until that date but I forgot that I hadn't after talking about how amazing it is elsewhere. The spindle is gorgeous and spins beautifully. My spindle just how I imagined it and the seller is wonderful to work with. I will definitely be back for more!
My first line of shipping is USPS First Class. I try to have every yarn and fiber sale out into the hands of the postal service within one business day of a sale. For spindles and fiber tools that are 3D printed, I try to have those orders out within 3-4 days but ask that you allow 2 weeks. In the event of a delay in filament delivery or printing issues on my end, I will notify you. Insurance is always an option if a buyer wishes to purchase it, as is faster shipping.
