Our maple wood drop spindle kit is handcrafted in our studio here in Maine. Free shipping to the US on all our spindle kits and yarns! We stain the spindle with rosewood and handpaint it with a quaint folk art design. The spindle is 12 inches tall, 2 1/2 inches in diameter and weighs about 1.7 ounces. All of our spindle kits are available in both top and bottom whorl. If you would like a top whorl kit, please contact us at time of purchase, otherwise a bottom whorl kit will be sent.

(A bottom whorl has the whorl weight at the bottom of the shaft and spins slower which is good for heavier yarns which need less twist in them. A top whorl has the weight at the top of the shaft and spins faster which is good for thinner yarns and fine fibers such as angora, alpaca, etc. But, you can spin thin yarn & fine fibers on a bottom whorl but you have to spin it harder as well as you can spin heavier yarn on a top whorl but need to spin it slower. Sometimes, new spinners like the faster top whorl because it spins longer and gives more time to pull the fibers into the twist. I personally prefer a bottom whorl because I find it doesn't wobble as much since the weight is on the bottom. Basically,they both spin yarn the same way and it is a matter of preference).


This kit includes 4 ounces of roving. One roll handpainted in a blend of dark evergreen, yellow & turquoise which spins into a lovely yarn forming shades of dark greens, yellow greens, bluegreens and every shade of green in ! There is a roll of solid evergreen and a roll of undyed white to practice with. Also included is an illustrated instruction booklet with pictures to get you started and a plastic drawstring bag to keep it all in.

Spinning is an ancient craft and we made this spindle kit to pass on the spinning craft to future generations. We take great pride in our work here in Maine and use non-toxic, colorfast dyes and have a smoke free environment.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn to spin your own yarn and you can take this anywhere and spin!

This would make a fabulous gift for your favoite knitter or crochetter (which very well may be your self!).

We gladly ship internationally.

Wholesale inquiries and custom orders are welcome.
