Drop spindle spinning gives you the skills you need to learn to spin and are a portable, fun way of spinning. It is also a very relaxing mindful hobby. Even if you can’t knit you can consider using a small loom or other uses for your wool. 

This kit includes everything you need to get started:

Approximately min 50g of British rare breed wool. The Whiteface Dartmoor fleece spinning fibre is hand processed completely by myself from shearing on the farm to kit. It is skirted and picked through, soaked and then washed thoroughly before drying in the sun. It is then dyed naturally with ivy in a dye bath over days as the colour develops. The next step after drying again is to then card it repeatedly until smooth enough to spin.

Also included in your kit is a lustrous bunch of mixed curls from the Rare Breed Whiteface Dartmoor sheep, also hand dyed to add in whilst you are spinning to create further interest to your yarn. 

A hand made wooden spindle with top whorl (the round heavy bit!).

Full colour instructions to walk you through the basics and get you going.  Just to say…it’s very addictive!
