These spindle kits are just gorgeous. The fiber and the spindle are both hand panted and remind me of stained glass. These would be the perfect companion for our learn to drop spindle course. If you are looking for a great gift for someone who would like to learn a new craft the combination of the kit and the class would be the perfect start.
Currently available in two colors Red/Orange & Blue/Green
The spindle is wood and handpanited with a glaze finish in TN. approx 3 inches across and 12 inches long.

Top whorl design which is what I prefer for learning on and is the same type of spindle used in our drop spindle course.
handed fiber mini braid is approx 1 oz of hand painted merino super wash for superior softness and ease of wear.
Want to learn to drop spindle and don’t live near a friend who spins? Check out our step by step drop spindle course that this kit would work great with.
After much request I’ve made an online version of my local drop spindle and intro to spinning workshop.
This is 12 video online workshop designed to take the student from having never held fiber or a spindle all the way through 2 plying your final yarn.
There are also 4 bonus videos covering common troubleshooting that has been covered in local classes as well as how to set your yarn after it’s spun, and how to chain or “navajo ply “ on a drop spindle for beginners.
Also a recommended product guide from other small business for different types of spindles and spinning tools.
This course is perfect of anyone wanting to try something new and who may have been intimidated by technical spinning terms and techniques. This is designed to be a fun and light hearted approach course where you will be able to spindle your own yarn by hand at the end. All of the videos and content are the exact same step by step approach that I have used to teach others locally.
The videos are all filmed from the aspect of you and I being in the same space where I can show you exactly what I’m doing in great detail. I have taken great pains to really break down all of the small little details that other students have had questions about so that they are easy to understand.
We also have have a facebook and instagram community where you can show off your work and ask questions from all of our friends and CHY artist.
When purchased you will be immediately emailed the private link to the course and password.
