In 2022 USPS began imposing radical length surcharges on packages 30" and over. These spindles require that length of package, so that is why the shipping is so high on these.
Really Sturdy and well Made here in the USA, Ashford's traditional Navajo spindle is uniquely designed for supported thigh spinning and has a 4- 1/2" diameter whorl and a 30" - 31" long shaft. If you have an appreciation of ancient and traditional fiber arts, this is great for re-enactments, teaching and for just having one of the most unusual spindles in your spinning group! These giant spindles are easier and completely different spinning that a drop spindle. And did I say FUN?! Here is a great video for learning to spin and a Navajo spindle.
Made from solid hardwood, these spindles are supported on the ground and leaned against your thigh or stood between your knees/legs.
I will include 1 oz of premium spinning fiber with purchase of this spindle. Listing is for one spindle.
Because of its length, this spindle must ship by Priority Mail or Fed Ex. I ship every day Monday through Friday. Your order will go out immediately and reach you quickly!
