Tibetan style supported spindle, medium weight in Western Australian Snakewood, Montana and Dymondwood This lovely Tibetan style supported spindle design is an heirloom quality item designed for a lifetime of use. It is medium weight (31 grams - around 1.1 oz ) and 255 mm or 10 in long. The photos show the one you will receive. Spin characteristic - medium, with good sustain, the large diameter whorl holds a large cop. Ideal for longer staple fibres or plying. Made by Jory Freyee and Malcolm Fielding in the SpindleShop Queensland Australia. All materials sustainably sourced. The shaft of this heirloom quality item is made in Dymondwood for durability, stability and long life. The tip is made from a titanium insert for extreme durability. The point is carefully shaped to be slightly rounded over to avoid damage and scratching to support surfaces, and to ensure really smooth spins at all angles. The whorl of Western Australian Snakewood is of generous size to hold a large cop. Underneath the whorl is a trim of Montana (Queensland). This design has a very long duration medium to slow speed spin characteristic. The balance has tuned and perfected by insertion of concealed pin weighting in the rim of the whorl as needed. The spindle has been tested both for static and dynamic balance. The top point is a slender taper to a narrow point to allow the yarn to slip the tip easily. The titanium bottom point is well defined and designed for an effortless long spin. A support bowl is needed for using this type of spindle. I also offer support bowls on this website and can make one to order if there are none in stock. The spindle is polished with a high shine French polish and a final gloss of carnauba wax adds durability. All my spindles are tested before despatch and come with a free sample of our lovely fibres.
