Pu Yok - Tibetan style supported spindle, medium weight in Red Morell burl and Dymondwood, titanium tipped, long shaft This lovely Tibetan style supported spindle design is an heirloom quality item designed for a lifetime of use. It is medium weight at 39 grams (around 1.38 oz ) and 300 mm (11.75 in) long. The photos show the one you will receive. Made in 2018 by Jory Freyee and Malolm Fielding in the workshops of the SpindleShop, Queensland, Australia. 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 resin stabilised Red Morell burl (Western Australia) is a pretty bowl shape, hollowed on the top side. Red Morell has highly attractive grain figure, and this wood has been treated by our special vacuum resin immersion technique to stabilise and protect the wood. The lower trim is made from purple Dymondwood. This design has a very long duration medium speed spin characteristic. The balance has been tuned and perfected by insertion of nickel-silver 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 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.
