Pear Tahkli supported spindle is designed for spinning short fibers and very fine yarn. Designed primarily as a support spindle, it has a 10 1/2" brass shaft and a hard maple pear-shaped whorl, weighing about an ounce. Wonderful for cotton and other shorter stapled fiber. Also available is a spindle bowl to support your Pear Tahli while spinning. It will keep it in the correct position to spin and offer better control.
This is a great little drop spindle to take along when vacationing, rather than larger, heavier spindles (Did I mention it only weighs an ounce?). Listing is for one spindle with fiber.
Spindle comes with 2 ounces of top quality spinning wool from heritage longwool breeds, such as BFL, Shetland, Cheviot, Polworth, Wensleydale and Gotland top. The white/cream wool is ecru and takes dye very well.
I carry quite a few drop spindle selections in various brands and prices. Just browse through my "Spindles" section. Low shipping cost!
