Woodland Woodworking Teacup Spindles
The Teacup was designed to have the ideal combination of spin time and speed. Named for the whorl's appearance of a tea cup nested in its saucer, the Teacup is a lightweight hybrid support spindle designed for those who find most Tibetan style spindles too heavy or difficult to flick, but prefer a longer spin time than found in a typical Russian style spindle. The slender shaft and rim-weighted whorl produce an agile spindle with an effortless yet sustained spin appropriate for a wide variety of spinning styles and fibers. These spindles are generally between 0.5 and 1.25 oz (15 to 38 grams) and spin times are typically between 20 and 45 seconds.
