Hand Spinning drop spindle starter kit
A great but reasonably-priced general-purpose drop spindle for hand spinning. The whorl (top-whorl) is nice and chunky and keeps the spindle spinning for a long time. It has a long spindle (12" long), so a good capacity to store your yarn as you spin or ply it.
