The Druid's Egg Tagua Nut and Brazilian Cherry Bead Whorl Support Spindle with Matching Support Bowl

This matching set of handspinning tools includes a vegan ivory tagua nut Druid's egg support spindle, and a ceramic and Brazilian cherry spinning bowl. Please note that the tagua nut Druid's Egg cannot be turned while mounted on the shaft, therefore each spindle may have a slight wobble.

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 Brazilian cherry. The weight of this supported bead whorl spindle is 1.1 ounces (30g).

Our originally designed support spinning bowl combines the efficiency of a ceramic surface with the stability of a wide beautiful wooden base. The ceramic bowl measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter, and the gorgeous Brazilian cherry base is 2 3/4 inches in diameter. Cork has been added to the bottom of this bowl to keep the wood from scratching other hard surfaces.  Additional photos can be seen in our Etsy shop.
