This is a large, medium weight drop spindle which would be good for spinning all kinds of yarn and is suitable for beginning spinners.
The whorl is made of Gabon Ebony and Maple and the shaft is Maple. It's finished with smooth shellac and wax polish. The hook is hand made from stainless steel and the whorl is notched. It can also be used as a bottom whorl spindle since it has a knob on the end of the shaft.
The spindle weighs 1.6 ounces or 47 grams. It's 10 1/2" long overall and the whorl is 3 1/2" 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.
