Item details

11" long, hand crafted, medieval style, tapered spindle sticks.

An excellent general purpose stick that is both elegant and robust. At 11" long it will hold plenty of spun yarn and with a 3" taper at the bottom end, leading up to a 1/2" (13mm) wide "belly" it will take most of the available whorls on the market (apart from those with very small holes) and is also ideal for extant medieval metal whorls and modern whorls with a similar hole size.

The bottom tip is not too "pointy" and so is able to withstand the occasional "drop", but they are finished to a tip that is able to be used "supported" should the need arise.

The bottom taper matches the tapered holes in my whorls (available separately) exactly and so they do not fall off in use. The sticks will take whorls with straight holes but you may need some other device (such as a small elastic band) to hold them on. Try to use whorls with tapered holes whenever possible.

Overall, these sticks are perfect for both expert and beginner alike.


Please select your preferred flicking tip style, and wood choice, from the options.
Spiral grooves will be cut for "clockwise (Z)" spinning by default. If you would prefer them the other way round (for S spinning) please leave a note on your order or let me know with a message.

Whorls are available separately. See listings.

*** Suitable for use with whorls that have a 7mm (small end) or larger tapered hole, but will accept whorls with up to an 11mm diameter hole (ideally tapered). If you have any doubts as to whether these sticks will take your whorl(s) please convo me and I will do my best to advise. ***

Length: 28cm (11")
Diameter at widest point: 13mm (1/2")
Weight: 10g to 12g approx.

Shipping charges are combined on orders for multiple items.
