This is the perfect spindle for the beginner or for advanced spinners. It has been hand crafted by a spinner. The whorl has been cut from Exotic Red Heart wood. The shaft is turned from BirchwoodI have handhand turned these parts and assembled them in my home workshop. The finish is a hand rubbed mixture of beeswax and orange oil to give this spindle a pleasant feel and appearance. The Whorl is 3 3/4 inches in diameter and the shaft is about 11 inches long. It is rim weighted to make it spin a long time. I have included 2 ounces of wool roving from Brown Sheep Co. so that you will ready to begin as soon as your spindle arrives.
A note to the buyer: This is a handmade spindle. It is a one of a kind piece. I personally turned the shaft and whorl. I assembled it and hand rubbed it with a mixture of orange oil and beeswax. The hook is solid brass for long lasting appearance and durability. It is not a storebought wheel that someone pushed a piece of dowel through. I have taken the time and care to give you the best spindle possible. I won the Intergalactic drop spindle speed spinning competition at the Redway Natural Fiber Festival with a spindle just like this one. I hope you will enjoy it.
