This Steampunk Medium weight top whorl drop spindle weighs 0.9-1.1 oz (26-31 g)
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" long poplar shaft with a dinner bell hook. Stained Gun stock 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?

Light weight and all the notches are very convenient. The varnish is a little tacky still, so maybe didn't have enough time to cure before it shipped.

This is my first ever spindle and it spins like a dream! Well-balanced and well-made. Promptly shipped too.

I bought this spindle so I could ply my cotton singles. I’m new to spinning and was struggling with the drop spindle that was given to me that had no notch in the whorl. Words cannot express how much I love this spindle. It is stunning to look at and feels smooth and comfortable in my hands. It makes spinning so easy and fun! It was shipped quickly and I received it just a few days after ordering. I’m sure I will order more in the future.
