This kit is all you need to learn how to spin!


Spinning with a drop spindle has been used by cultures all over the world for hundreds of years. It's convenient and portable.


If you've ever wondered how yarn is made, this is the simplest way to see if spinning is for you.


This kit contains a hand turned drop spindle, 2 oz of fiber, information on the fiber in your kit and of course, instructions. You're always welcome to send me an e-mail to ask questions and I promise to help in anyway I can!


The drop spindles are made from re-claimed hardwood salvaged after a micro-burst felled some of our wonderful trees. They have been hand turned by my husband and finished. Your drop spindle may vary slightly in shape from the ones pictured, but they will all be made with the same approximate dimensions.


WARNING : Playing with fiber is addictive. Proceed with caution.
