Wanting to learn to spin or simply looking to add to your spindle collection? Well you’ve come to the right place!

Hand turned specially for Sealy MacWheely by local craftsman, John Hamilton, each spindle is unique but perfectly balanced to ensure a smooth and enjoyable spinning experience. Each spindle features both a hook for top whorl spinning and a notch at the bottom to allow for bottom whorl spinning to suit your personal preference. 


Material: Choose between an Ash or Yew whorl. Each spindle is unique but the average weight is roughly 45g and is capable of spinning a range of yarn weights from fine to chunky. Each spindle is tested by myself before shipping to ensure a balanced centre of gravity.  

Add Fibre: Add any of the custom blend tops from the Hitchhikers and Firefly ranges to your order and receive 33% off your fibre! Discount will be added to your basket automatically and is not available on art batts or hand dyed top. 

Add Tuition New to spinning and want some help to get you started? Enjoy a reduced rate of one to one tuition when purchased with your spindle kit (£15/hour versus regular cost of £20/hour - not available retrospectively). Gift certificate for tuition will be included in your parcel and is valid for a year from date of purchase. Tuition is generally held within the shop but digital classes can also be arranged via Skype or FaceTime upon request for those who cannot make it to Kirkintilloch in person.  


Please note that as each spindle is one of a kind I cannot guarantee the specific aesthetic of each individual purchase beyond the whorl material. If you wish to choose your own spindle you are more than welcome to visit me in the shop to try before you buy!
