Wood is a natural product, which can change color over time. Some woods have more obvious color change than others. Wood will bleach if left in direct sun; the temperature difference from the sunny side to the shaded side of the item can also have detrimental effects.

This spindle is one of a kind made by Cynthia D. Haney from boards, wire, and varnish. The whorl has a notch to guide yarn toward the hook. Under the whorl the number, weight, and finish date are marked and I sign my monogram. The finish is durable; however dropping on a hard surface can cause blemishes. All dimensions are accurate within 3/8″ or 0.01 oz. for weight.
