Item details

The whorl of this drop spindle is made from a wood called Chad. It comes from Africa and is a deep brown in color. I started with a groove on the very edge and then a large round bottom groove near the middle. The bottom is flat.
The finial is made from Sycamore which comes from U. S.. It is a light yellow with darker grain. The top of the finial is domed, the side slopes in and continues that width to the whorl. A brass hook and poplar dowel complete the spindle.
Several coats of clear gloss polyurethane give a beautiful shine.

Whorl Diameter: 4"
Finial Diameter: 1 1/16"
Thickness: 5/16"
Tall: 1 9/16"
Weight: 1.9 oz.
Overall length: 12"

FAQs

It is best to always hand wash hand knitted natural fiber items in cool water with a natual fiber safe laundry soap or natual fiber wash. Let set for recommended time stated on label of detergent. Rinse in the same temperature water, squeeze excess water out gently, then reshape and lay flat to dry. Larger items can be laid on a towel, gently rolled, and can be pressed by hands or feet to expel water. Do not agitate, or vigorously scrub during washing as fibers can felt easily.
