All the spindles both whorl and shaft are fully hand turned by Cynthia D. Haney. Hooks are shaped, hammered, and polished copper, by Cynthia using her original design. The whorls have a notch to guide the yarn to the hook. 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.
