Drop spindles are one of the earliest known tools made for spinning fibre into yarn. Examples of drop spindles made from a variety of materials have been found in archaeological digs from all cultures and all eras.

This drop spindle is made from two pieces, the whorl and the shaft, of solid birch. The whorl is 3 inches around and 3/4 inch thick. The shaft is approximately 10 inches long and 3/8 inch thick. The shaft has a small notch at the top for hooking the thread when it is suspended from the fingers for spinning.

The wood has been sealed with a wax and shellac, food grade, clear finish for years of beauty and service.
