Learn to spin in beautiful color!
Why start with plain old undyed wool - pick your favorite colors and be inspired! If you love fiber and you love color, you will be fascinated as the colors combine right before your eyes when you spin. This kit is totally appropriate for beginners! I have many years of satisfied customers who have learned with this kit.
You choose your favorite general colors for the roving. Warm or cool or a surprise. Or drop me a note, if you want something more specific.
Included in this kit (as pictured):
- 1 top whorl drop spindle: the conical shape of the whorl puts most of the weight along the perimeter, helping the spindle spin longer and stay more stable. A notch in the whorl helps keep your spun yarn in place. Both the whorl and the shaft are custom crafted from hard maple, sanded until smooth, and finished with satin lacquer on the whorl and a satin danish oil on this shaft. The spindle is 10" long, rounded on both tips, has a 2.5" whorl, and weighs 1.8 ounces. Handmade in Ohio.
- clear, illustrated instructions to learn spindle spinning.
- 3 oz beautiful hand painted 100% merino wool roving
Kits are beautifully wrapped up in a gift bag. This makes a creative gift for yourself or your friends and family (even great for crafty kids 12 and up).
Yay - my spin kits were featured in the Etsy blog!

A note about color and monitors:
I try hard to make sure my photos capture the color of my items accurately. I also describe the colors in the description for a richer sense of the look of the item. That said, monitors do differ, sometimes brightness is turned up or down and this may account for a difference in the photo and the actual item.
My yarn and fiber is hand dyed individually by me. I don't have "dye lots" in the traditional sense. I do create several skeins at a time which can be used seamlessly in a large project. You will receive matching skeins when you order multiple skeins of the same name in a single order. However, if you order skeins with the same color name at different times, on different days, the skeins may not match exactly. It is a good practice to work rows alternating from 2 balls to even out any color variations if that is the look you desire (this is a good technique to use with all hand dyed yarn). And, as with all yarn, it is best to make sure you purchase enough for your project in the beginning.
Many of my handspun and handpainted yarns are created "to order". while I have created careful color recipes, each batch of yarn can vary a little from the original photograph. Please be aware that your yarn may not look *exactly* as in the photograph! These variations are an intrinsic part of all hand dyed and handmade items. Rest assured, you are free to return or exchange any item (see refund section above) if you are unhappy for any reason with your purchase. The item just needs to be in original condition. Just let me know asap and I will re-do the yarn, you can choose another or I can refund your payment after I receive the return.
Let me know if your order is a gift. I will leave out the invoice and include your personal message to the recipient. Gift wrapping, for a small fee, is also an option at checkout.
Thank you and have a lovely day!!
