Beautifully constructed, perfectly balanced top whorl drop spindle for hand spinning:

• Whorl – 2 1/2” Diameter of Pennsylvania Staghorn Sumac
• Shaft – 9 1/4” Maple (below the whorl)
• Hook – 18 gauge Nickel Silver Hand Bent Wire
• Weight – 1.0 oz. or 28 grams
• Notch – Can be added at the buyer's request. Please specify location.

Each spindle that Ken creates is unique, one of a kind, and this drop spindle is truly exceptional. For the whorl on this spindle, Ken selected an exotic piece of Staghorn Sumac--straight from a friend's firewood pile! This wood was grown and discovered in Central Pennsylvania resting in a wood pile. The photos do not do justice to this wood's beauty. The colorations are actually somewhat yellowish and in places olive green, as well as golden honey brown, and the markings are absolutely stunning. For the shaft Ken selected a piece of creamy maple which compliments the sumac quite nicely. This is a beautiful American born drop spindle!

Not only is this a gorgeous spindle with a silky smooth finish, but it spins and spins like a dream! Each drop spindle that Ken creates is designed individually to enhance the beauty of the wood. The finish is soft and silky smooth. This beautifully crafted spindle, complete with an 18 gauge, hand bent Nickel Silver hook, is made to last a life time, and become a frequently used family heirloom, passed down from one spinner to another.

We hope you enjoy our shop and appreciate our designs. All wood used in our beautiful drop spindles is purchased from suppliers who practice sustainable wood production--or in this case, rescued wood! For questions, convo us or check out our store policies:
