A few of my Royale Hare Support Spindles are currently available. The new machinist has improved the Support Spindle by making the base larger for more stability. The spindle now spins longer than ever due to the expertise of this talented machinist. The new machinist has been able to keep my Royale Hare Support Spindle at a reasonable price. The old machinist wanted to raise the price by a third to over $120.00.

The Support Spindle by Royale Hare is the original ball bearing support spindle. It has been made by Royale Hare for over 15 years. Its optional padded, fitted carry case designed by my mother is available. The carry case is made from 100% cotton handwoven Guatemalen fabric. Purchasing your Royale Hare Support Spindle with carry case saves you $4.00 on the carry case, usually $18.00, please see the listing which includes carry case for the savings.

The machined brass spindle was designed to spin very fast in order to spin a sound fine yarn, since the finer your yarn the more twist that is needed. Designed to spin angora, it spins cotton, cashmere, yak, silk, fine wools, blends, camel down, qiviut/muskox, alpaca, bison, mohair and more all with ease. In fact I spin my finest and best cotton on this spindle.

The Support Spindle weighs 15.5 ounces and has 2 ball bearings in the separate base for smooth spinning action. The spindle shaft is made of safe Delrin® plastic. Tucked into my padded and fitted carry case your Support Spindle will safely travel in your pocket or purse.

Set on any solid surface, even a book on your lap or airplane tray, and you're ready to spin! I have taken The Support Spindle in my carry on bag and have not found it to be a problem. Remember the shaft is safe Delrin® plastic sitting on a 1 1/4" steel pin, which goes through the whorl.

The Support Spindle is guaranteed against defects in workmanship for one year from the date of purchase. During the guarantee period Royale Hare will replace, at no charge, any parts found to be defective.
