RESERVED for Mary
The Clay Sheep Drop Spindle - Purple Flower Top Whorl Drop Spindle (No 392) - Small 1.04 oz
Purple & white flowers with purple & clear crystal centers on a black base.
Limited Edition: Purpleheart base & shaft
Every spindle purchase comes with a .25 oz Spindle Butter!
They are rim weighted (the majority of the weight is towards the outer edge), balanced, spin really smooth & for a good long time.
They come in 3 sizes - Small, approx. 1oz - Medium, approx. 1.5oz - Large, approx. 2oz
(Each individual spindle weight is listed in the title & first line of description.)
Choosing the weight of your spindle can be confusing & leaves a lot to personal preference. You can spin almost any type of yarn on any spindle, it just takes effort & skill. However, I think some spindles are better suited for certain types of fiber & weights of yarn. My general guideline is this:
Small - thin yarns, laceweight, fingering & possibly sport weight
Medium - medium weight yarns from sport weight to worsted weight
Large - thick yarns from worsted weight, bulky & art type yarns, also good for plying
Each one is completely handcrafted with a lot of love, effort & care, not a lot of fancy tools. :) They are all numbered & signed by me on the underside of the whorl.
CUSTOM COLORS: Feel free to contact me about having a drop spindle made with a custom color. What is a custom color? Any color that I do not have in the store stock at this time. There is no extra charge for a color request. However there will be a $10 charge for every revision to the original color request, because I will have to start over & create a whole new whorl every time.
All spindles are shipped with USPS Priority Mail, fully insured, within the US. First Class international mail.
