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. Spin times are typically between 20 and 45 seconds.
