No words can describe these drop spindles. They are gorgeous, exquisite and very well made. I almost hate to use them, but I will take them to a meeting to show them off for sure. I absolutely love these spindles.

The spindle was packaged very nice. It is beautiful and spins wonderfully.

Not just aesthetically pleasing but spins a nice thin yarn both controlled and consistent. I have purchased a few tahkli spindles and bowls from this shop and though I have not gotten the hang of the spin as I am a drop spindle gal, it is my goal over the holiday to revisit these wonderful tools. I highly recommend this product
