Mini Moose Antler Tibetan Support Spindle Travel Set

Dave has crafted the 1 3/8 inch whorl of this stunning little support spindle from moose antler. He has chosen jatoba as the wood for the 8 1/4 inch shaft. The weight of this spindle is 0.8 ounces or 24 grams.  Accompanying this little beauty is a mini ceramic spinning bowl which has been decorated, with glaze, by hand. A velvet bag is included to store your bowl when it's not in use.  You can find more photos of this beautiful handspinning tool in our Etsy shop.

Moose antlers are shed naturally, so no moose were injured to make this spindle.
