This top whorl drop spindle is hand turned in bloodwood with a band of crushed Sleeping Beauty turquoise inlaid stone. It's 9 & 1/2 inches (23.5 cm) long with a 8 inch (19 cm) shaft below the whorl and a polished brass hook. The whorl is 2 inches (5 cm) wide and turned for a rim weighted, nice long spin. It weighs 1.25 ounce (35.5 grams) and is notched.

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. And this is from an exceptional piece of bloodwood! It glows and shimmers like a cats eye stone in the light!

We crush our stone inlays by hand from undyed, natural, gem quality stone. The difference this makes in color is truly stunning! But that's why we do it. :) The turquoise used for this piece came from the 'Sleeping Beauty' mine, and is some of the finest in the world!

If you love this spindle, but would like it in another weight, or with a bottom whorl, just contact us. We would be happy to make one for you!

We enjoy both woodturning 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.
