This kit has everything you need to start spinning your own yarn! Each kit includes one of our handcrafted top whorl drop spindles, 2 oz. of Coopworth spinning fiber, and complete instructions for getting started. Hand spinning is a traditional fiber craft that allows you create unique yarns from plant or animal fibers. Once you learn the basics, the possibilities are endless!
Below is additional information about the drop spindle:
The Fiber Artist Supply Co. drop spindles are very popular among fiber artists in search of an inexpensive beginner spindle. We take care ensuring these spindles spin true, giving every spindle a test spin prior to shipment. The conical shape of the maple whorl puts additional weight around the rim, helping the spindle spin longer and stay more stable. A notch in the whorl helps keep your spun yarn in place. The spindles are individually crafted in our Cincinnati, OH workshop of maple and beech from domestic and international sources. The spindle is 10" long, rounded on both tips, has a 2.5" whorl, and weighs 1.8 ounces.
