This spindle features a natural gemstone inlay of bornite.
The Llampetia spindle line represents the heaviest spindles offered in my store. These spindles are great for plying and spinning sport, worsted, aran or bulky weight yarn.
These hand-turned, top whorl drop spindles are perfect for spinning on the go! Each spindle is unique and hand crafted with extreme care and attention to detail.
This drop spindle features a maple whorl and shaft. The whorl is notched to securely hold your handspun yarn over the whorl.
All wooden surfaces are sanded silky smooth and finished with a beeswax and orange oil wood finishing product and a final coat of pure beeswax. The metal hook is hand bent and is glued securely in place. This spindle can last a lifetime!
I carry a wide range of hand-turned spindles; check my store listings for availability of other sizes, woods and finishes.
I welcome custom orders! Please convo me if you would like something specific.
