Versions of the drop spindle have been dated back to 5,000 BCE and they are still very much in use today. This is the simplest and most portable method of spinning yarn.Our walnut drop spindles are beautiful, for sure, and they have been exhaustively re-designed and tested many times to achieve maximum spin duration and perfect balance. Each of our spindles can be used in either high-whorl or low-whorl positions, depending on the spinner’s purpose and preference.
The three sizes and weights provide for a broad range of material, textures, and weights of the finished hand-spun yarn. They are also beautiful just lying around your studio space.
