This Steampunk Medium weight top whorl drop spindle weighs 1-1.2 oz (27-34 g)
Experience Level: Beginner and above
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.
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?

I am so pleased with this spindle. It is lightweight for it size, which makes it easy to spin and to keep in motion. I love all of the notches around the whorl. I bought it with the intention to mostly use it for plying, which it does very well. However, I am finding that I really enjoy spinning with it, too. This will be my go-to spindle for spinning a worsted weight yarn and for plying if I need to ply with a spindle.

Great weight. So many spinners recommended Snyder Spindles and I am glad I listened to them.
