Item details

This handmade wooden mushroom-shaped Drop Tibetan Spindle is perfect for the fiber artist in your life who likes to hand-spin fiber. There is a hook on top of the spindle just above the whorl for catching the yarn.

The whorl is 2" in diameter and 3" tall, while the spindle is 1/2" at the top and 3/8" at the bottom. It is 12 inches long.

As a gift, you need not worry. Everything I make is made-to-order, so feel free to tell the recipient that you had this handmade just for them. Gift-wrapping is always free.

We work exclusively with discarded wood, the majority of which spalted. Caught at just the right time, spalted wood is magnificent to look at, lasts for generations and ensures that each piece is one-of-a-kind.

To restore the finish, occasional wipe down with walnut oil.

Shown in spalted maple, you may choose black walnut, copper beech, hickory, spalted sycamore, mimosa, black birch, cherry, or regular walnut. Spalting, knots, small surface splits, dark mineral streaks, and holes appear unpredictably, ensuring that each piece is one-of-a-kind.

These are made to order, it will take 1-2 weeks to complete.
