Additional bottom whorl spindles available at festivals in October 2018. I was not satisfied with the pictures I took of the newest bottom whorls and will not try to sell you a spindle without a good look.

All the spindles both whorl and shaft are fully hand turned by Cynthia D. Haney. Hooks are shaped, hammered, and polished by Cynthia using her original design. The whorls have a notch for yarn guidance. Each spindle is numbered, marked with its weight and the date, signed by Cynthia, then receives multiple coats of protective varnish. Pictures are taken against white fabric in case your device shows otherwise.
