This top whorl drop spindle features a red heart whorl and cedar shaft. The well-balanced red heart spins forever, and the cedar is finished nicely to grip without being too harsh on your hands. The whorl is flat on top and hollow on the bottom. The design will assure the spindle spins longer. I custom-make the metal hook to ensure the utmost quality and ease of use. An excellent top whorl drop spindle for spinners of any skill level, from novices to experts.
