This drop spindle is small and light and would be good for spinning finer yarn.
I turned it on the lathe in my little wood shop. The whorl is made of Purpleheart and Oak and the shaft is Walnut. It's finished with a non toxic beeswax polish. The hook is hand made from stainless steel and the whorl is notched.
The spindle weighs 1.2 ounces or 34 grams. It's 10" long overall and the whorl is 2 5/8" across.
I am a spindle spinner and every spindle is tested personally. I turn the entire spindle on the lathe so it is well balanced.
