Drop Spindle Kit

I used to combine a spindle and fiber, but I have so many great color choices and fiber options and a lot of different spindles to choose from too, so I think it is best to put your own together.

Drop spindling is a great way to get your feet wet spinning if you're not yet ready to invest in a wheel.

The easiest fiber to try spinning, because it is already drafted pretty fine for you, is the Artfelt Pencil Roving.

Go to that page and pick a colorway you like and then pick a spindle here. If you want a basic spindle, I would recommend either the Ashford 70mm or the Cascade Little Si to begin with.
