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.
Pictures are taken on a white background. If it does not look white on your screen the wood color may not be accurate. Please e-mail email@example.com for clarification.

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.
