Item details

I based the design of this one on ancient Greek spindles that I have seen in pictures, not in person!

I love the contrast of the very sharp angles in the Sugar Maple shaft and top part of the whorl against the gentle curve of the rest of the black walnut whorl. This spindle has a very fast spin like a Russian, with amazing sustain more like a Tibetan, making it a very versatile spindle for all your spinning needs. I think you'll have as much fun spinning yarn with it as I did creating it!

The following specs are close approximations.

Weight: .90oz. / 27g.
Length: 11" / 28 cm
Whorl Diameter: 1 3/8" / 3.5 cm

All of my offerings are finished with a protective french polish then buffed to a satin sheen with my own beeswax finish, which is not only durable, but eco-friendly as well. The beeswax finish also allows the true beauty of the wood to shine through.

I use sustainably sourced hardwoods from a local, small, family run mill.

Thank you for stopping by my shop! If you have any questions, please contact me!

Average review
Reasonably fast and lengthy spin. Very smooth. I've been enjoying working with the fiber the spindle was packaged in for this one.

This spindle is breathtaking... sooo pretty and it spins endlessly ... the finish is so smooth and makes the wood shine so beautifully ... oh my .. I love it so much! If there were more than 5 stars to rate I would give all of them gladly! Thank you, John, for this awesome piece of art!
