2. Complete Instructions including Terms to Know
3. 1 oz. Corriedale Sheep Wool Top Roving dyed in emerald green
4. 1 oz. Baby Alpaca Roving in natural white.
Bottom Whorl—The weighted whorl is at the bottom of the shaft and spins slower which is good for heavier yarns that need less twist in them. This spindle is best for medium to long fibers. It can also be used for short fibers. This spindle is well suited for beginners.
Top Whorl— The weighted whorl is located at the top of the shaft and spins faster which is good for thinner yarns and fine fibers such as angora, alpaca, etc. This spindle is good for more advanced spinners, however, sometimes new spinners like the faster top whorl because it spins longer and gives more time to pull the fibers into the twist. I personally use a bottom whorl more often because it doesn't seem to wobble as much since the weight is on the bottom. Basically they both pretty much spin the same and it is just a matter of personal preference.

NOTE: If you would prefer to have a bottom whorl drop spindle with this fiber color combination instead of this top whorl drop spindle in this listing, please convo me in the shipping instructions message and I will be happy to switch it out to a bottom whorl for you.
