Nothing says hand spinning like a simple, but unique drop spindle. Our
top whorl drop spindle is a spoked for a one-of- kind of wagon-wheel look - reminiscent of those days on the ol' Bonanza.
The spindle shaft is made of birch, while the whorl is made of ash. The whorl is 3 inches in diameter and the spindle is 3/8 of inch thick and about 12 inches in length. The spindle and whorl are hand rubbed in our HH herbal, organic wax and the spindle weighs approximately 1.5 ounces.
Here is a simple video showing how the "Little Joe' spins http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDZMONDi-eM If this link does not work you can go to www.youtube.com type in Little Joe Drop Spindle in the search box and find it that way.
