Learn to spin your own One-of-a-Kind unique yarn with our hand made drop spindle and easy to spin roving. This is a great spindle for beginners.

Kit comes with:

1. Bottom Whorl or Top Whorl Drop Spindle - hand made, sanded, finished with wood wax polish in a natural light oak color. Shaft measures approximately 12" long and whorl is approximately 3" in diameter giving enough weight to the drop spindle for easy spinning. Includes yarn leader made of alpaca yarn and a brass hook.

2. Complete Instructions including Terms to Know

3. 1 oz. BFL (Blue Faced Leicester)Sheep Wool Top Roving in Natural

4. 1 oz. Hand Dyed BFL Sheep Wool Roving in Varigated Mint and Teal Green

Bottom Whorl—The weighted whorl is at the bottom of the shaft and spins slower which is good for heavier yarns that need less twist in them. This spindle is best for medium to long fibers. It can also be used for short fibers. This spindle is well suited for beginners.

Top Whorl— The weighted whorl is located at the top of the shaft and spins faster which is good for thinner yarns and fine fibers such as angora, alpaca, etc. This spindle is good for more advanced spinners, however, sometimes new spinners like the faster top whorl because it spins longer and gives more time to pull the fibers into the twist. I personally use a bottom whorl more often because it doesn't seem to wobble as much since the weight is on the bottom. Basically they both pretty much spin the same and it is just a matter of personal preference.

Item ships USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation.

NOTE: If you would prefer to have a top whorl drop spindle with this fiber color combination instead of this bottom whorl drop spindle that is in the photo, please convo me in the shipping instructions message and I will be happy to switch it out to a top whorl for you.

***LAST BUT NOT LEAST! If you need a Niddy Noddy Yarn Skein Winder to set the twist on your new handspun yarn, check out the totally immersible Niddy Noddy made of PVC listed here in my Etsy shop!
