Mini Spindle

This is not the smallest spindle I’ve ever seen. I have seen smaller ones that were meant as charms. But, it is the smallest one I have ever attempted to spin with, and the lightest. It weighs .28 ounces. I have had to adjust my technique quite a bit to spin a fine mohair on this thing. But, I have been able to do it. I am hoping it may be easier to spin wool, something with a little shorter staple length. I purchased this with the hope that it will be more portable and it certainly is that. It is lovely and well made. Here are the specs :

Maple Burl with Ambrosia Maple shaft
1 1/2 inch Whorl diameter
3/8 inch Whorl thickness
7/8 inch above the Whorl
4 inch below the Whorl

  1. Awww, how adorable is that ! I have so much to learn about spindle spinning, I get it, I think, how the smaller the spindle , the finer the yarn. Brilliant. And that is some really seriously fine yarn !
