Black Heart Tea Tree is a very rare wood and this batch of spindles might be the last that come out of the spindle shop

This lovely Tibetan style supported spindle design is an heirloom quality item designed for a lifetime of use. The photos is the spindle and bowl you will receive. Hand turned in 2018 by Jory Freyee with design and assistance by master craftsman Malcolm Fielding in the workshops of the SpindleShop, Queensland, Australia. 100% Australian made, no parts are outsourced or made on copying machines. All products are tested and quality controlled.

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 is a saucer shape, hollowed on the top side. This design has a very long duration high 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.
