Description

HANDCRAFTED • ONE OF A KIND

Feel inspired to hand spin your own beautiful yarn with this beautifully unique drop spindle. Crafted by hand in our studio, this top whorl drop spindle features a perfectly weighted ceramic whorl, on our hand-cut hardwood poplar dowel. The wood was sanded to smooth perfection and carefully polished with our Silken Spindle all natural non-toxic wood balm. Your drop spindle will also come with a FREE .5 oz sample tin of our amazing handmade wood balm.

The gorgeous white cracked glass patterned ceramic whorl will be sure to have heads turn to watch you spin, and the grooved design makes it easy to catch and wind your yarn up to the hook. This spindle is perfect for spinning all types of fibers and rovings into yarn.

This spindle would make the perfect unique gift for the hand spinner and fiber enthusiast in your life! It is perfectly sized to fit into a bag or purse to take your spinning on the go!


MEASUREMENTS

Drop spindle measures approximately 11 inches long from top hook to bottom.
Ceramic whorl has a circumference of approximately 6 inches around.
Drop spindle weighs approximately 3 ounces. Our heavy weight ceramic drop spindles offer a unique spinning experience. With the ceramic whorl weighing more than traditional wood spindles, you get a superior spin, the perfectly balanced heft adds speed and precision to your spin.



WOOD BALM SAMPLE

Our all natural handcrafted wood balm leaves any wooden item feeling silky smooth and sealed under a natural protective layer. Perfect for using on your drop spindles, wooden knitting needles or crochet hooks, spinning wheels, weaving looms, or any other wooden tool (or furniture!) in your home. The natural oil in the balm nourishes the wood while the beeswax provides a glossy moisture proof seal. We’ve also added Lavender, Rosemary, and Lemongrass Essential Oils to our wood balm, so it is naturally antibacterial as well as repellent to any moths or other yucky insects that may try to come near your yarn or fiber stash! We really can’t see a downside to this balm- In addition to it being 100% natural, it smells amazing and is completely non-toxic and skin safe (unlike most harsh chemical wood polishes).

Silken Spindle Wood Polish Ingredients: Olive Oil, Beeswax, Essential Oils of Lavender, Rosemary, Lemongrass.

A NOTE ON OUR CERAMIC SPINDLES

We recommend this drop spindle for a more experienced hand spinner, or else used above a soft surface (such as a carpet) while learning, since the ceramic whorl, while very sturdy, can possibly break if dropped onto a very hard surface. If you are just learning to hand spin on a drop spindle, we recommend one of our completely wooden drop spindles with wooden whorls. :)



Thank you for looking, have a blessed day!
