This Navajo spindle is hand turned with a 32 inch white cedar shaft and a 4.25 inch bloodwood whorl. It weighs ~7.8 ounces (~221 grams).
In the group shot, it's the spindle on the upper left.
Bloodwood is an exotic hardwood that is deep red in color. A good piece has an almost golden sheen and shimmer when it catches the light. White cedar is a very stable wood, and is least likely to develop a warp over time, making the spindle very well balanced and wobble-free.

We enjoy both wood turning and fiber arts here at our farm in Maine. Knitting, crocheting and spinning with beautiful, hand-crafted tools makes the experience even more pleasurable. Craft your art with art! Enjoy it!
All of our fiber arts tools are crafted with the care and workmanship that will allow them to become cherished family heirlooms. We like to think that someday, someone's child will be using, and loving, the same tools that were passed down to them from a parent, relative or friend.
Our items are hand-turned from the finest woods. Our technique in finishing the wood makes it sooooo smooth your roving will glide right over it, and it shines like glass.
All our wood is purchased from companies who use sustainable harvesting practices. Even our rarer woods, like zebrawood and ebony. Here at Autumn Hollow we farm with both organic and sustainable methods, and believe these practices are the only future for our world and our growing population's needs.
We stand behind our products and will replace or refund any product you aren't satisfied with.
We enjoy working with nature's gifts of wood, silver, semi-precious stones and also use crystal and glass.
