Item details

This drop spindle is made from Zebrawood and Black Walnut.
The whorl of this drop spindle is made of Zebrawood which comes from Central America. The wood is a light tan with very dark brown grain. The whorl is 3 15/16 inches in diameter and 3/8 inches thick. I cut a large round bottom groove near the center and a small v-groove near the edge.
The bottom of the whorl is flat.

The Finial is made of Black Walnut from the United States and is a lovely dark brown in color. The over all height is 2 3/8 inches and the diameter tapers lightly. The top of the finial has a round dome while the body of it lightly tapers with three small bead grooves near the top.

the diameter varies 1 9/16 inches to 1 5/16 inches at the base. The top of the finial has a round dome of 1 9/16 inches by 5/8 inch deep. It tapers from the bottom up 1 1/8 inches to two 1/8 inch beads.

A poplar shaft completes the spindle, and a brass hook goes on top. It is finished off with several coats of Clear Gloss Polyurethane to make it shine!

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.
