Item details

This Tibetan style support spindle is loosely based on an ancient Greek spindle. The low center of gravity and the slender whorl give this beauty a very fast spin like a Russian but with a longer spin time.

The elegant whorl is turned from silver maple enhanced with wood dyes on the top half and copper accents including embedded copper powder on the bottom half. The shaft is turned from black walnut. This gorgeous spindle has a very fast, long spin. The spinning tip is a stainless steel ball bearing.

Weight .80 oz. / 22 g
Length 10.25" / 26 cm
Whorl Diameter: 1.5" / 4 cm
Whorl Depth: 1 5/8" /4 cm

The pictured Spin Cushion can be found in my shop here:

This Tibetan spindle, like all of my offerings, is French polished, then waxed to shine with a protective layer of beeswax.

All of my spindles are tested by me, my wife, or one of my daughters before shipment. Sometimes it is necessary for me to pin weight the whorl with a small copper pin in order to make it perfectly balanced.

I use sustainable hardwoods from Johnson Creek Hardwoods, a local, small, family run mill.

Thank you for stopping by my shop! If you have any questions, please convo me!

    The spindle is not only a beauty, it also runs very easily and makes a lot of fun to work with. A real work of art! She was sent very quickly and was so affectionately wrapped up!!! Thank you very much! <3
