Hand turned in the New Forest, this is one of a small collection of drop spindles upcycled by Will using what's available in his shed!


There's a hook for spinning top-whorl at one end of the spindle shaft, and a notch for spinning bottom-whorl at the other end, so one spindle gives you the Best of Both! 


Each spindle has a slightly different weight and a slightly different finish, but they all look gorgeous and feel great to spin with - I may have kept one for myself.....:) 


All my products are hand made, unique and one-of-a-kind; please refer to the ticket photograph for individual material content. 


Price includes postage/shipping within UK


Care Instructions


Gentle hand wash using mild detergent in luke warm water, do not rub.

Darn, sew, weave, tuck in any loose ends – do not cut!


WOOD or METAL ITEMS - looms, spindles, hooks, sticks, needles, spindles, shawl pins, key rings

Wipe with damp soapy cloth.

Check for any rough patches or splinters - smooth off using fine sand paper. 

Gentle wipe with natural beeswax polish makes the wood feel good too!
