Short shaft Tibetan spindle, titanium tipped, medium weight in spalted Jamaican Fiddlewood, Lace Sheoak and Dymondwood This heirloom quality spinning tool is an original designed by Jory Freyee and made by Jory and Malcolm Fielding in the workshop of The SpindleShop, Queensland, Australia. This small support spindle design has a small whorl on a Dymondwood shaft around 215 mm long, or about 8.5 in, weighing about 1.3 oz (37 g). It is very fast and light with an excellent spin and very thin flicking tip. The whorl of resin stabilised spalted Jamaican Fiddlewood (Queensland) is a pretty shape, hollowed on the top side. It has a lower trim of Queen Ebony. The spindle is finished to a very smooth surface, polished with a french polish and then a final gloss of carnauba wax for a long lasting shine and protection. The support tip has a carefully shaped titanium point for long spins and is made for extremely long life life and low friction. Your spindle is checked for quality and spin before despatch and comes with tip protectors and is packed with some Merino roving and a signed tag with the woods used listed and date of making. Please note that my spindles are balance tested and corrected when needed with extra pin weighting in the whorl rim, the pins in these are sterling silver. The spindle operates at a very high speed and is very easy to flick, with a small diameter where it is held to be flicked allowing high rotation speeds to be achieved with ease. It is suited to short staple fibres such as silk or cotton for very fine singles. * Please note that the colour in photos viewed on the internet can only ever be a general guide as to how the item appears in real life. So many variables affect this - especially the type of screen that you view on. We make every effort to colour balance our photos so that the resulting images are as close to the true appearance as possible, but you may be seeing something different. Also remember that some woods change colour over time, and when exposed to direct sunlight.
