This is our beautiful handcrafted maple wood drop spindle kit available in either top or bottom whorl with a spindle that has been stained and hand painted with simple folk art. The spindle weighs approimately 1.7 OZ and is 12" tall with a 2 1\/2 inch diameter whorl.

(A bottom whorl has the whorl weight at the bottom of the shaft and spins slower which is good for heavier yarns which need less twist in them. A top whorl has the weight at the top of the shaft and spins faster which is good for thinner yarns and fine fibers such as angora, alpaca, etc. But, you can spin thin yarn & fine fibers on a bottom whorl but you have to spin it harder as well as you can spin heavier yarn on a top whorl but need to spin it slower. Sometimes, new spinners like the faster top whorl because it spins longer and gives more time to puul the fibers into the twist. I personally prefer a bottom whorl because I find it doesn't wobble as much since the weight is on the bottom. Basically,they both spin yarn the same way and it is a matter of preference).

This kit includes 4 1\/2 ounces of hand painted roving, one roll of Evergreen, Brown & Black on a creamy white background, one roll of solid brown, one roll of solid gray and one roll of undyed white to practice with!
There is an illustrated instruction book to get you started and a drawstring bag to keep it all in. Please contact us if you would like a top whorl kit, otherwise a bottom whorl kit will be sent.

Spinning is an ancient craft and we made this spindle kit to pass on the spinning craft to future generations. We have a smoke free environment and use non-toxic, colorfast dyes.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to spin your own yarn and you can take this anywhere and spin!

This would make a fabulous gift for your favorite knitter or crochetter (which very well may be yourself!).

We gladly combine orders to save on shipping and we do ship internationally.
