Drop Spindle Distaff

$20.00

If you use a drop spindle, this is a must have tool you can not do without! This drop spindle distaff is a tool used for spinning. This one is designed for you to be used with a drop spindle. It is essentially a “staff” that holds the loose fiber out of the way of the yarn being spun. I designed this with wire that is spiraled and able to easily hold the fiber around the staff and added a little bling along the way with some glass beads and topped that off with an Angora felted ball. There is a loop to put your pinky finger through to grasp it as you are spinning. Your fiber is “wrapped” around the distaff loosely and held above the drop spindle (see photo) to keep it clear of the yarn being spun.

 

Materials Used:

12 gauge Aluminum Jewelry Wire

Green Glass handmade beads

Handmade Felted Angora Bead
