Beautifully constructed, perfectly balanced, and simply elegant top whorl drop spindle for hand spinning:

• Whorl – 2 1/2” Diameter of Paduak from Central Africa, Copper InLace, Turquoise Nuggets
• Shaft – 8 3/4” Tulipwood (below the whorl) from South America
• Hook – 18 gauge Nickel Silver Hand Bent Wire
• Weight – 1.7 oz. or 48.19 grams
• Notch – Can be added at the buyer's request. Please specify location.

Each drop spindle that Ken creates is uniquely designed to enhance the beauty of the wood. For the whorl on this drop spindle Ken selected a beautiful piece of Paduak from Central Africa. This piece of Paduak is a vivid reddish orange with an abundance of dark streaks and beautiful markings. The shaft is a lovely piece of Tulipwood which blends nicely with the Paduak. For a final touch of elegance, Ken added a circle of copper inlace with a sprinkling of turquoise nuggets. What a beautiful combination these two woods make!

Not only is this a gorgeous spindle but it spins like a dream! The finish is soft, silky smooth and almost glass-like. This beautifully crafted spindle, complete with an 18 gauge, hand bent Nickel Silver hook, is made to last a life time, and become a frequently used family heirloom, passed down from one spinner to another.

Please note this Handcrafted Drop Spindle will ship Priority Mail to all U.S. locations and First Class Mail everywhere else.

We hope you enjoy our shop and appreciate our designs. All wood used in our beautiful drop spindles is purchased from suppliers who practice sustainable wood production. For questions, convo us or check out our store policies.


NOTE: The price of this spindle is a bit more due to the cost of the Tulipwood.

Thanks for visiting our shop!
