Here is a gorgeous Russian spindle hand turned from black walnut. This spindle shimmers as it spins thanks to the gorgeous grain patterning along with the inlay of copper and denim. Yes! that's an inlay of copper and denim! These pictures don't fully capture the beauty of this spindle!
My Russian spindles spin exeptionally well with smooth spinning, making for a pleasurable hand spinning experience!
The beauty of a Russian spindle is that since it is supported in a bowl, you can spin just about any weight of yarn that you wish. Russian spindles are especially good for spinning lace weight yarn. And you can use it just about anywhere!
Since this is a made to order item, the following specs are approximations:
Weight: .95 oz. / 27g. Length: 11 3/4" / 30cm
This Russian spindle, like all of my offerings, is finished with French polish then buffed to a satin sheen with my very own homemade beeswax finish.
I use sustainable hardwoods from a local, small, family run mill. Visit their website here: johnsoncreekhardwoods.com
