Ashford Classic Spindle

Ashford Classic Spindle

A great all-round drop spindle for hand spinning. Perfect for medium and chunky yarns. The whorl (bottom-whorl) is nice and chunky and keeps the spindle spinning.

14" (355mm) long altogether, whorl is 4" (100mm) diameter and weighs approx 90g (3 oz). Comes with instruction leaflet.

Beautiful-looking spindles which spin beautifully too. The wood is Indian sheesham wood, an old member of the rosewood family.

They weigh 50-60g, whorl 80mm, 10" (250mm) long with a tapered spindle.

Note that being handmade, they may vary a little from the photographs in terms of exact size and weight, wood colour and grain.

Made by a small family firm in India. The 'oily polish' finish is a family formula. It has an exquisite shine and is waterproof.

I include a nest of free fibre with each spindle
