Top Whorl Drop Spindle Kit

This kit includes 4 ounces of domestic blend wool roving and a steampunk medium weight top whorl drop spindle. (weights vary 0.9-1.1 oz (26-31 g) Your choice of color, Mahogany (brown) or Gunstock (orange).

I use this roving on a regular basis, it is what I used when I learned how to spin. I also use in when teaching beginners, as it has a longer staple length (about 4, 4 1/2") and drafts well.
It features a hand-turned 3 1/2" diameter whorl made from Baltic birch ply, with a 10" poplar shaft with a dinner bell hook.

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?

I have also created a beginner spinning tutorial to help get you started

This is a fun spindle. Well balanced. Spins long and fast. Love it.

Beautiful spindle. I am new to spinning and this one makes it a pleasure to learn with. Thank you!

I'm so in love with this spindle. Hope I can master it. :)

Snyder's customer service was phenomenal. He responded promptly and courteously to my inquiries. My order was in the mail next day, and arrived well packed. I decided to see how well it spun. I was able to spin 58WPI singles, and I could wrap my cop to within 1/8 in of the outer rim before the notches stopped catching. Spin times were long and remain fast with minimal wobble.

Top whorl drop spindle, Beautiful easy to spin.
