This listing is for one big drop spindle for spinning art yarns.
Some of them have covered bells/pompoms for extra magic, and pixie music as you spin your creations :-) and some are without the covered bells/pompoms, so that you can choose whether you prefer them with the extra embellishment, or without.
I have hand whittled these big drop spindles from natural branches.
I have embellished around the hooks with my wood burning tool.

Each spindle has a large hook to handle the chunky art yarns, they are bottom whorl spindles and the whorls themselves are made out of my handspun art yarns.
I first created them for my spinning students who wanted to learn to spin art yarns, the art yarns spinning wheels can be an expensive purchase, so learning to spin these yarns on a spindle works well, it takes a bit of practice and getting used to, with the extra weight and size but once you've got the hang of it it's wonderful fun! When we went travelling I really missed my art yarn spinning wheel the most, and I love being able to spin art yarns on the road now!

Each spindle is completely one of a kind, a totally unique and little piece of earth magic and woodland art for you to work with to create yours!

The sizes and colours are totally random in each spindle, but all of them are big! :-)
Each spindle is totally unique and organic in it's shape and size, your spindle will be selected randomly from what we have in stock.

Enjoy creating your magical woolly art <3

*Can I get my my dreads wet? & Are they washable?
Yes they're fully washable, I recommend washing them in an eco friendly shampoo (without the harsh foaming agents) In the UK we use Urtekram brand.
Do make sure that you thoroughly rinse them as any soap suds left in the dreads could rot the fibers.
To dry them I wouldn't use a hairdryer but let them dry naturally within 24 hours, by sitting in a warm room.
If they are cared for they can be washed and re-installed as many times as you like.

* Can you offer wholesale
Yes we can, please message us your requirements.

* Can you tell me the exact length? (clip in dreads)
No. This is because each dread is hand made and when we felt them we have no idea of how the wool will shrink during this process, that's why we give approx sizes.

* How do I install your dreads? We are currently making our own videos of how to install the double and single ended dreads but for now here's a couple of good videos on youtube.....

*How many dreads do I get? It depends which dreads you are referring to, please check the description on the listing first, it should say on there, if you're still not sure then send us a link to the product you mean in your message.

*Can I get my order by the date I need them?
We will always try our best to get your dreads to you by a certain date and we will say if we don't think it realistic. If you want them for a certain date please let us know asap. Please note though that once we've shipped them we have no control over how long the shipping company will take to deliver them, so please don't get moody with us if they don't arrive with you in time for that festival your going to.
