KCL - Modular Hand Spindle
1 Whorl & 3 Shafts. These spindles are one of a kind works of art, signed and numbered by the artist - Ken Ledbetter.
This new new modular spindle includes the whorl and finial, and three shafts that screw in and out, so you do not have to remove yarn from the shaft, until you have filled all 3. And because you are using the same whorl, the spinning is even.
Each beautiful KCL spindle is handcrafted by Ken Ledbetter, carefully finished and has been tested for precision balance and superior "spinnability" by Jill Holbrook, a lifelong fiber artist, teacher, designer, knitter, and weaver, with over 30 years experience in spinning.
Ken's spindles include; Colored Inlay Spindles- with decorative inlays from stones, granules and a variety of products; Stone Inlay Spindles, with a hand polished stone in the whorl; and Button Inlay Spindles, with decorative buttons, usually vintage or antique, inlayed in the whorl. He specializes in many, one of a kind Spindles - signed and numbered.
Whorls are approximately 3" in diameter and the shafts are approximately 8" in length and weight ranges from 1.05 to 1.50 ounces.
