The Awesome by Pig-Tales Spindles

This beautiful spindle is one of a kind. The pigtail hook and the unique weight distribution are what make this style of drop spindle special. The Awesome is our medium weight (1.5 to 2.0 oz) offering. It is excellent for spinning not only worsted weight yarn but will spin very fine lace weight singles as well. Because of the unique weight distribution this spindle will spin fine yarns for 35 -45 seconds* with a single spin. Even with these incredible spin times the spindle spins fast enough to produce a very fine yarn.

This spindle has graphics on it that is from Proverbs 31.
She seeks wool & flax, and willingly works with her hands. Proverbs 31:13
She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and holds her hand to the spindle. Proverbs 31:19

The wood we use is beautiful & durable. With a lacquer finish this spindle is heirloom quality.
