Hand Spindle - Teachers Special


This inexpensive and durable hand spindle will make it easy to teach spinning in workshops and schools.

Along with Interweave Press's free brochures, (hint it is at the bottom page Low Tech HIGH satisfaction}and you're on your way to fun and relaxation! I suggest you print out both brochures.

This hand spindle comes with two, 4 1/2 inch, red whorls and a 12" long, 3/8" thick birch shaft with a hook at one end. Total weight is 2.2 ounces. Use one whorl alone for spinning singles, then add the second for plying. Or use both together for thicker yarns. This spindle is very versatile and can be used as a top or bottom-whorl hand spindle. An inexpensive way to suit all your hand spinning needs!

Special note for Hand Spindles.

We use 3/8" wood dowels for the hand spindles and because wood is affected by moisture you might have a problem putting on the flanges on where you want them.

Ideal is for them to push on and stay were you want them.

Next if flanges do not stay on, wrap one or two wraps of scotch tape where you want to put the flanges to hold them in place.

Last if the flanges are very tight you can either sand the dowels down or wrap some fine sand paper around a pencil and open up the 3/8" hole carefully so the flanges will stay on the dowel.

Is there anyone interested in spinning onto a bobbin? You spin this one just like you would a top whorl only it is at the bottom. You spin the spindle on your leg. It worked just fine. This one weights just 2.7 oz. The core weights 0.7 oz. Core is free for the asking for those who want to try it. Also has free Velcro to hold bobbin to base. You have to put it together. This one the bobbin is made with the smallest flanges (2-1/2"). You can have fun designing your own.
