This kit contains everything you would expect from a drop spindle kit and a bit more. You get the drop spindle and 100g of Shetland tops to play with, but in addition you get two extra shafts. Here's the plan; you spin until your first shaft is full, remove the shaft with your single on it. Then you replace your shaft and spin on happily. When that one is full, you remove it. Now you have two "bobbins" ready to ply onto the third shaft. Pop your "bobbins" in a bowl and off you go. Ply straight or navajo it's up to you. We also make sure that your whorl is suitable for a beginner i.e. long slow spin.

Our spindles are locally handmade out of wood that would otherwise be burnt. So it's up-cycling and recycling. It also saves the sanity of the woodturner's wife who gets a bit of peace and quiet while he's working in his shed.
