This listing is for ONE Drop Spindle Kit, with EITHER a top or bottom whorl spindle (you will have to choose when you check out) and all of the fiber pictured. If you would like more than one kit, change the quantity in your cart. If you don't want to choose which whorl you would prefer, you can add a second drop spindle from this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/159293136/drop-spindle-top-or-bottom-whorl

I would be happy to customize a beginner's box for you. Just send me a message and we can talk about colors or substitute fibers. There are other colorways available here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KittyMineCrafts?section_id=14077639

The kit includes:
1 Drop Spindle (choose top or bottom whorl)
3 - 1 ounce roving samples
1 sheet of written instructions and the address where you can find my "learn to spin" video on YouTube ( http://KittyMineCrafts.com/SpindleVideo )

I have included 3 fibers:
1. Superwash Merino Wool and Stellina - Sparkly blend that is very quick to draft. Might be better to spin after you've gotten a touch of experience with the other fiber blends.
2. Superfine Merino, Mohair and Mint Fiber (Mojito Blend) - Smooth and easy to draft, somewhat lustrous fiber blend
3. Blue-Faced Leicester (BFL) Wool and Carbonized Bamboo - A longer staple wool that is easier for many beginners to work with. The grey streak of bamboo lends strength and interest to the finished yarn.

The spindles in this kit are very basic spindles, GREAT for beginning spinners. The spindles are made from hard maple wood and finished with Danish oil. They are 10" long, have a 2.5" whorl, and weigh 1.8 ounces.

When choosing top whorl or bottom whorl, there are a few things to keep in mind. A top whorl spindle will spin faster. A bottom whorl spindle will generally spin longer. Both can be used to make singles and ply your yarns. The type of spindle you choose will be a personal preference, and everyone swears by one or the other. There are no spinning police - choose what you think would work best for you.
