Item details

"Fabulous spindle. Flawless spin. Thanks so much for making these spindles. A dream that's come true."

This well-balanced, smooth-spinning Tibetan spindle has a unique Super Power! With my Interchangeable Whorl System, you can:

1.) Switch from a light weight spindle to a heavier spindle (and vice versa) by simply removing one whorl and replacing it with another of a different weight.

2.) Easily remove the whorl altogether to lessen the weight once you have a heavy copp.

3.) Order your custom whorls, made to your exact specifications. Do you have an exact weight in mind for an extra whorl or two? Or three? Order here:

4.) Order your custom shafts, also made to your exact specificaions. It can be as long or as short (within reason, of course...) as you want and as fancy or as plain as you want. Just let me know what you want! Order here:

5.) Brag to your friends that your spindle is a Super Hero!

This listing is for one shaft and one whorl. The whorl and shaft are both turned from curly maple.

To change the whorl, simply give it a gentle twist to release it or secure it in place. All my Interchangeable Whorl System spindles and whorls are, well, interchangeable with each other!

Weight of shaft: .35 oz/11g
Weight of whorl: .5 oz/14g
Total weight: .85 oz/24g
Length: 10 1/4"/26cm
Whorl diameter : 2 1/4"/57mm

Many thanks to my good friends in the Ravelry Support Spindlers Group for the inspiration to make these spindles!

All of my spindles are tested by me, my wife, or one of my daughters before shipment. Sometimes it is necessary for me to pin weight the whorl with a small copper pin(s) in order to make it perfectly balanced.

This spindle, like all of my offerings, is French polished then buffed to a satin sheen with my very own homemade beeswax finish.

I use sustainable hardwoods from Johnson Creek Hardwoods, a local, family run mill.

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