The Druid's Egg Spindle and Matching Support Bowl

This matching set of handspinning tools includes a vegan ivory tagua nut Druid's egg support spindle and a ceramic and cocobolo spinning bowl.

The tagua nut, also known as vegetable ivory, was beautifully carved by Dave to represent a Druid's Egg. He has crafted the 10 inch long shaft from cocobolo. The weight of this supported bead whorl spindle is 1.0 ounces (28g).  Additional photos of the set can be found in our Flickr portfolio.
