Medium Weight Mandala Gear Spindle
top whorl drop spindle weighs 1.0-1.2 oz (29-39 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 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?

This is the first step up from a basic beginner spindle. I love the spin and the spindle itself is beautiful.

I love this spindle. All the notches make it so easy to use, even for a newbie. And it is so pretty! Update: I have five or sux drop spindles now and this is by far my favorite. It’s light but it spins easily - it’s well-balanced, spins long and easily. I have a similarly-weighted one by another well-known vendor that is so frustrating until it gets some weight on it - but this Snyder one spins well from start to finish. It is the one I teach for; I think I need another.

Easiest spindle to use (ever) ❤ Spins for a very long time, and allows yarn to be chain plied on the fly easily. If you're looking for a ply-on-the-fly spindle or a begginer's spindle, THIS is the perfect choice ❤ (It also storages a LOT or yarn 🧶)
