Amelia Light Weight Drop Spindle
Beautifully made in Maine, this cherry shaft drop spindle weighs 1/2-1 ounce. The two pieces are roughed out and joined, then turned on the lathe as a unit to preserve balance for the longest spin. The shaft is worked to have stops which prevent that annoying creep of the yarn cone down into the spinner's fingers. Measures 8.5" overall and whorl is 2".
