These hand-turned spindles from local woodworker Gil Pacheco are a pleasure to spin with. Made from a range of hardwoods and turned with a variety of whorl weights and profiles and stick lengths, each one is unique. We have classified them by whorl position (top, bottom) and weight as follows:
- Light: less than 50g, good for spinning fine singles; for experienced spinners
- Medium: 50g - 70g, good for spinning medium singles; for spinners of any level
- Heavy: more than 70g, good for spinning thicker singles or for plying; for spinners of any level.
