Clockwork Gear Spindle


Shipping to United States: $4.20

This medium weight Clockwork Gear top whorl drop spindle weighs 1.1-1.2 oz (30-34 g)
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" long birch shaft and a cup hook with a bronze finish.
Stained Golden Pecan and sealed.

I hand turn these with the mass to the rim for better balance and longer spin.
well balanced and tested

This unique shape is not just stylish but does what a good drop spindle does...spin.
The center cutouts not only makes it lighter it puts the majority of the mass to the rim and that's a good thing. Who doesn't want 20 notches?

A lovely spindle - in use currently.

Beautiful spindle. I wasn’t expecting it so quickly. It spins very nicely and for being so light, it holds the spin a long time. It is my new favorite. I especially love how the gear notches allow you to bring the yarn through wherever you want.

This spindle is so perfect, it's rapidly becoming my favorite. The weight, the balance, and the size are all fantastic. It has a nice, smooth spin, and I love that the gear teeth around the top are deep, so the wool won't slip out, and I don't have to worry about aligning with a notch. I just tuck the wool wherever it happens to land and keep going.
