Spinner's Roving Distaff, Oak & Gunstock Walnut Burl
I use a little lazy Susan mechanism with ball bearings between plates.
It spins real nice. Base 5 inches Wide, 12 inches Tall.

Item is in Photo 1 & 2...3&4 are example photos...5 is me at my 1946 Atlas Screw Making Machine uncovering a walnut nosty...

Wind up a big old ball of roving on this tool, set it next to your wheel and spin till you fall over!
I have seen distaff examples up to 5 feet tall from colonial illustrations...

The Distaff is a device common in illustrations of early spinning and fiber activity.
Revived with a little bit of modern technology, but with a colonial model in mind.

The roving, ball of stripey worsted & ruler: For illustration only!

All of our items are guaranteed. If you do not like it, send it back & I will refund the purchase price.
