Home Up Susan Lisard Ultralight Taper Fit Niddy Noddy Judi Drop Spindle


The Susan is a lightweight top whorl drop spindle.  The shaft is Maple and the whorl is Walnut with twisted brass wire accenting the rim.  The hook is handmade of Stainless Steel wire and comes to a narrow peak to make the attachment point precise and consistent.  The whorl is notched at four points around the rim to aid in carrying the yarn over the whorl.  The whorl is turned so that most of the weight is concentrated on the rim.  The brass accent adds more weight to the rim and helps the Susan attain long spin times for such a light spindle.  A copy of the product sheet is available in pdf format.
