These perfectly balanced holistic Top Whorl Drop Spindles are truely unique. Designed for performance, by me Lena Ekelund, designer and engineer of the Ekelund Carder. As an engineer and environmentalis, for me design and great performance go hand in hand with saving resources. All my spindles are made from upcycled materials.
Try one, you will love it. .
Here is some feedback from previous customers:
"It just turns for soooo long, thanks to the nerdy engineer."
"It is the best spindle I have ever bought. Can I please buy two more."
"Wow, it really goes on forever. I had a tough time keeping up feeding the fibers at first (-: "
"My friend let me use hers when we had our Sip and Spin last Friday. Never spun on a spindle so nice. I would like to order one like hers but orange instead. How soon can you have it ready?"
"This drop spindle is superby designed by one who understands how to maximize performance. Combining her engineering and design skills with a clear understanding of spinning has created this outstanding drop spindle. I highly recommend it. Both for beginners and advanced spinners."-Alan Waller, wool specialist and author of "Cut it, how to make wool more valuable" Designed and made in Sweden

I was a little apprehensive about buying a 3-D printed spindle. How well could these work? VERY WELL as it turns out! I love this thing. The triangle design on the shaft performs beautifully with my arthritic hands. It's very easy to grip. The spindle is very well balanced with a long spin time. Great job, Spindle Lady!
