Eric has been busy in the woodshop lately and has just finished two new batches of our octagonal drop spindles.
I put ribbon leaders on them because everything looks better with ribbon.
These are good for beginners - not too heavy, but heavy enough to spin for a while as you learn to draft.
The second batch is in spalted maple. Spalting is what makes those cool dark lines in wood. I love spalted wood.
spindles are 2.3 oz. 9 inches tall. Good for experienced spinners
who want a good spindle for wool. Not too heavy, not too light.
These are also made so you can put the hook on the top or bottom for spinning.
Spindles are $20 and listed on Etsy now. These tend to go pretty quickly, so don't delay if you want one.
