This tiny laceweight drop spindle has a carved spiral (pigtail) that allows the yarn to attach to come from the shaft without either a half hitch or hook. The spiral allows the yarn to feed out at the spindles center of rotation, making for a smooth spin.

I've added a little bronze colored gear to this one for that steampunk effect that every spindle needs. Actual steam power not included.

Materials: Yucatan Rosewood whorl with bronze toned detail/Walnut shaft
Whorl: 2 3/8 in.(5.8 cm diameter)
Shaft: 8 in. (20.5 cm) long/ 1/4 in. (.7cm) diameter.
Weight: about .5 oz. (15 g)

The wood is lightly finished with tung oil and is affixed as a top whorl. This spiral is carved for spinning clockwise to make "z" twist. Please inquire if you are interested in bottom whorl spindles, a spiral for adding counterclockwise "s" twist, a split notch or notchless spindle.
