Each Tahkli Support Spindle weighs approximately 17 g. The shaft is 8" long and the whorl has a 1.25" diameter.
These supported spindles are prefect for spinning short-stapled fibers such as cotton, cashmere, and yak. If you are interested in learning to spin or looking for a low-cost, portable spindle to add to your collection, these are the perfect addition. The hand-dyed resin whorl is bonded to a sleek stainless steel shaft for a great feel in the hand.
Our resin is 50% bio-based, meaning less petroleum is used than other resins. The bio based ingredients are grown in Canada and can include soybeans and recycled eggshells. Our resin is also UV resistant, which will keep it from fading yellow over time!
Our stainless steel shafts are cut, sharpened, and polished by Buchanan Fiber Co, allowing us to select only the straightest pieces to ensure a smooth spin for your next project!
