This wooden drop spindle is as basic as it gets...nothing fancy here. It can be used bottom or top whorl. A hook is placed at the top to use as a top whorl spindle and a simple half hitch will give you a bottom whorl spindle. This is a great inexpensive drop spindle to get you started.
This spindle is fairly light weight, weighing 1.8oz. The spindle length measures just over 12" below the hook. Whorl measures at 2 1/2".
