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.

SKU: STBR000353 Category:

Wood is a natural product, which can change color over time. Some woods have more obvious color change than others.
Tulip Poplar will retain any color contrast. However all the green and purple shades will fade to a warm attractive brown. The lighter, white looking, coloration will become more cream color.
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.

    I really enjoy spinning with this Branch spindle. The Tulip Poplar is really lovely in person with subtle grain and color changes and the Black Walnut makes a sturdy shaft. The deep groove in the whorl is especially handy for my winding on style. The hook is nicely shaped and strong–doesn’t bend out of shape with use. I’m using this spindle for sport weight to DK weight yarn and it’s perfect for that.
