My new drop spindle

Here's a wooden spindle shaft with a handmade clay whorl, fired in a fire. It's modeled after really old types of spindles. I got it from a place in Germany called Pallia, found at

I got it to spin lace-weight yarn for my daughter's wedding shawl. It's pictured here with some of the flicked merino lockes that I'll be spinning for the shawl.

I really like my new spindle and whorl!
