The spindle you see in these photos is the spindle you will receive, it is already finished and ready to be shipped. We ship all orders the day after we receive them unless it comes in on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday) and then we ship promptly on Monday morning.

Please lay a ruler in front of you and look at the length of the shaft when placing a order if you are just learing to spin on a spindle ...PLEASE do not order a tiny spindle. The tiny spindle is for a more experienced spinner and we do not want you to be discouraged when learning to spin. A medium with a heavy weight is best or a large is better for a person just learning to spin.

Spindle weight 1.4 ounces
Shaft length 6-1/2 inches
Whorl width 4 inches

Shaft is made of Tiger Caspi.
Whorl is made of Honduran Rosewood.


The woods used for this spindle are all natural woods, we do not use stains or tints of any kind. The spindles are all hand sanded one at a time then waxed and buffed on a polishing machine.

I spin cotton, silk, and many wool blends on my tiny spindles depending on the weight. The lighter weight tiny spindles (0.4-0.5) are best suited for silks and silk blends. The heavier spindles (0.6 - 0.8) can be used for spinning silks, silk blends, cottons and wool fibers. Although, with practice and experience you can spin just about anything on any weight spindle.

A good general guild line is as follows:
0.4 oz.-0.8 oz. will spin a fine lace to finger weight yarn.
0.9-1.4 will spin fingering to sports weight yarn.
1.5-2.0 will spin a sport up to bulky yarn as well as make a good plying spindle.
