I love the Ashford drop spindles! There are notches on two sides to help secure the ends of mt spinning. They have a bent hook which I find keeps the yarn more secure as it is being created. The whorl has a rim, so the inside is lighter than the outside. They come in many weights. And I find the price very reasonable.
