Carved Moose Antler and Chechen Top Whorl Drop Spindle



*Due to export restrictions of wildlife materials, we cannot ship products crafted from antler outside of the U.S.*


Dave has been carrying a moose antler around for some time now, and he finally decided to donate it to the "spindle" cause. I think you'll find it well worth the sacrifice! 


This unique 1.9 ounces moose antler top whorl drop spindle has been intricately carved by Dave with his signature leaf motif. The notched whorl measures 2 1//4 inches in diameter, and the chechen shaft is 9 1/2 inches in length. The end of the chechen shaft has been shaped to accommodate a half hitch and a brass hook has been added to the top.


**Moose antlers are naturally shed each year, so no moose were harmed to create this spindle.**
