These are some of my beautiful Mirkwood Hand Crafts spindles.
Shelob & Nimrodel pictured here.
They are topped with shiny crystals or gems.
I took them outside the other day to spin a bit. I found some old cigar boxes for $3 ea recently, they are perfect for the spindles. I put some felt in there for protection, when I have time I plan to actually line them and cut/glue the felt on there.
It was a little windy out, but otherwise very enjoyable.
I just spun up a little bit of sample fiber that came with one of the spindles. Then wound on to a plying ball.
Then plied it up on one of my mini Turkish spindles.
Here's the finished skein .. very much lace weight.
