This listing is for a random coloured gradient core drop spindle in black or white holographic trim. This listing will be available until end of day PST July 31st, 2024, with 100% of proceeds from this listing will be donated to QMUNITY.

The holographic trim is a bit hard to photograph, but you can see a short clip on instagram [here]. Already have a spindle? [Rainbow] Gradient bobbins are available on their own. If you prefer to select exactly what you'd like and not leave things to random chance, check out my other listings :)

 

Each drop spindle comes with:

1x   textured mystery wool mini-batt(approx.14g/0.5oz)
2x   ¼” black rubber ring for bobbins

Please note: Drop spindles do not come with bobbins as they can be used without one. However, up to 4 random gradient bobbins can be added at a discounted price.

The free textured mystery colour wool mini-batt(approx.14g or 1/2oz) is for you to play around with, and test out on your new spindle. In the menu above, you can choose to upgrade to a 56g/2oz mystery batt or to completely remove it should you not want it.

Care Instructions/Warnings

Whorl & bobbins are made of  PLA(A renewable plastic made from plant starch). This material begins to warp at 60°c/140°F.

The hardwood shaft is unfinished, and you may choose to paint it or seal it with a wood finish of your choice. If the bobbins are snug, please sand down the wood prior to finishing or they may not fit afterwards.

I recommend practicing over carpet or grass as drop spindles and bobbins in general can be damaged from any drop on a hard surface – especially if they are full of yarn, as that will increase their weight. 

Due to the printing process, bobbins can snap if bent or if dropped.
