This is a drop spindle for hand spinning yarn with a beautiful octagonal opal quartz whorl. The shaft is a black/brown rosewood that has been carved above the whorl. The hook is made from a heavy gold filled wire which I hand bend, set, and file smooth forming a graceful, balanced curve.
This spindle, because it has 8 sides, will not roll away when you set it down!
