Shotzee Drop Spindle - Exotic Wood
Really, really special and made right here in Bath, Maine from gorgeous exotic hardwoods. The Shotzee drop spindle, is a tad heavier than its cherry wood sister spindle and weighs in at 2 - 2 1/2 ounces.
The shaft and whorl are first roughed out and joined, then turned on the lathe as a unit to preserve balance for the longest spin. The shaft is worked into stops which prevent annoying creep of the yarn cone into the spinner's fingers. It is a beauty you'll love to use. Woods will vary.
