The weight and size of this beautiful cherry spindle makes it ideal for spinning a light to medium weight yarn. Delicate but definitely a workhorse, this rim-weighted spindle will serve you well whether you are an experienced spinner or just learning to spin for the first time. The rich cherry wood has a durable finish and the wood will darken with age.

Nicknamed the "Tea Sipper", I have 5 of these spindles in stock. As they are handmade from natural material, the wood grain and fine detail of the spindle you receive may very slightly from the one photographed. If you would like an image of the actual spindle you will receive, that can be arranged. The weight range of these spindles is 34-36g (1.20-1.25oz).

Weight: 1.20-1.25 oz/ 34-36g
Whorl: Top Whorl
Whorl Diameter: approx. 2 3/8 inches or a bit less
Shaft length: approx. 9 1/8 inches below the whorl
Notch: Yes

This drop spindle has been hand crafted and I guarantee my craftsmanship. For more information on our shop policies, see: http://www.etsy.com/shop/foxmountainspindles/policy
