All the components are contained in a fabric wrap, with pockets to keep everything secure and organized. The wood parts are hand turned on our foot powered lathe, or hand carved, in the case of the spindle and soapstone whorls. The wood is cherry, with a distressed red milk paint and satin beeswax finish. This spinning kit is about 21" long and when wrapped is about 13"in circumference. It fits handily into a 4"x 4" box.
