Item details

This is a versatile drop spindle, capable of spinning a wide variety of yarn weights. I designed and turned the Silver Maple Maple whorl of this drop spindle so that most of the weight is at the outer rim. This increases the centrifugal force making for a longer spin time. The shaft is turned from Sugar Maple.
I've added a variety of dyes to the whorl along with some decorative burning. The shaft is dyed to match. The hook is hand made from copper.

weight: 1.20 oz./ 34 g
length: 11" / 28 cm.
whorl diameter: 2.5" / 6 cm

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.

Both the whorl and shaft have been finished with a protective french polish then buffed to a satin sheen with my own beeswax finish, which protects the wood while allowing the natural beauty to shine through.

I use sustainable hardwoods from a local, small, family run mill. Visit them here:
