Item details

Beautifully turned drop spindle ready to produce lovely yarn. It was made by my friend in his workshop out of new raw timber. It has been left in a raw state so you can either leave it and spin straight away or create you own designs on it with a gloss paint or other art work finished in a gloss stain. The gloss finish is a good idea to keep everythin spinning smoothly ie snag free.

To remove the completed yarn, its easy to jiggle the shaft and remove it, then one of the cross pieces (whorl) and the whole thing comes apart giving you the cutest little single plyed ball of yarn. You can either rebuild it in reverse order or put it away for next time. So delicate its great fun to use when you can't take your spinning wheel, ie I took mine on holidays and spun on the beach, You could use it when you don't have the space for a wheel. Great price for a student too.

The middle shaft is 25.5 cm long (10inches) and the cross beams (whorl) are 16cm each (6 inches). The design follows the Turkish cultural spindle.

Just for your interest, the fabric behind the spindle photo has been made with a drop spindle , then woven. Its Alpaca wool.

Please be aware that colours can appear differently on computer screens. My products are also handmade and unevenness can occur as a natural element or as a design feature.
