Want to learn how to start hand spinning, but aren't sure where to start? This is the perfect kit for you!

Drop spindles are how we made yarn long before the spinning wheel was invented. Spinning yarn by hand is something our ancestors did long ago. Learning to spin on a drop spindle is a connection to our past.

Kit Contains:
-One eight and a half inch long top-whorl drop spindle.
-More than 3 ounces of professionally-dyed, colorfast roving in a variety of colors. (I try to include as much roving as the packaging will fit. If you're going to need more roving, let me know!)
-An instructional booklet with directions on how to spin, helpful hints, and everything you need to get started right away.

Drop Spindle Kit comes packaged in a professional clear plastic box, which makes for great storage when you're not using your kit, and keeps everything conveniently together.

This kit makes an excellent present for someone crafty, someone interested in history, or for that special someone who can't sit still and loves to fidget with their hands! This would be a perfect Christmas present that someone who has everything!

The roving that appear in the picture is a sample, and yours may be different depending on what I have in stock.
If you would like a custom color for your roving, please let me know. I have a variety of different colors available, and I can always dye some for you! You can just send me a Convo saying "I love purple!" and I will make it work for you. I love working with buyers to give you what you want. Allow a little bit of extra time for custom dye jobs.
