- NEW STYLE DROP SPINDLE for spinning Cotton, silk, fine wool, and other fine staple fibers:

This design incorporates a 1/8" acrylic whorl that has a color tint in the center to reflect color out to the edge - making it appear to glow at certain angles - and I use a high quality lampwork print bead that is very well balanced (for glass beads that is), a silver plated pendant and numerous silver plated finishing caps and beads. The WHORL is made from a laser cut acrylic disc that I've milled to soften the edges and heat polished. The shaft is made from high carbon (spring) steel with a forged hook that has a 2-part powder coat paint finish applied for a beautiful look and feel. All parts, including whorl, findings, cap bead, and findings are assembled with an industrial 2-part epoxy glue.
