Drop Spindle

Spin your own unique and wonderful yarns with The Unusual Pear top whorl bamboo Drop Spindle.

Whorl - 8.5cm diameter (3.34 inch)
Shaft - roughly 25cm (9.8")
Weight - roughly 25g (.85oz)

I have online tutorials for drop spinning here.

Pair the Drop Spindle with some of my gorgeously soft merino roving to spin with. 

Each spindle is hand made with FSC certified bamboo and Tasmanian oak. As the spindles are handmade, sometimes the length and weight can vary slightly.

The drop spindle is one of the oldest known spinning tools in history. Our spindle is incredibly portable and lightweight. You can create finely spun, more traditional yarns or thicker, 2 ply art yarns to have fun weaving with!

This is a great learning tool for kids as well, who can very easily master this craft. Due to the design of The Unusual Pear Drop Spindle, you can anchor the spun yarn anywhere along the circumference of the whorl which makes it great for beginners to learn.
