Item details

This kit includes 4 ounces of domestic blend wool roving and a steampunk medium weight top whorl drop spindle. (weights vary 0.9-1.1 oz (26-31 g) Your choice of color, Mahogany (brown) or Gunstock (orange).

I use this roving on a regular basis, it is what I used when I learned how to spin. I also use in when teaching beginners, as it has a longer staple length (about 4, 4 1/2") and drafts well.
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" poplar shaft with a dinner bell hook.

I hand turn these with the mass to the rim for better balance and longer spin.
well balanced and tested

This unique shape is not just stylish but does what a good drop spindle does...spin.
The center cutouts not only makes it lighter it puts the majority of the mass to the rim and that's a good thing. Who doesn't want 20 notches?

I have also created a beginner spinning tutorial to help get you started
