These two beautiful spindles were both custom orders. The square spindle comes from Steve and Connie at Spindlewood Co. and is made out of Holly, which has a very pale coloration with little to no grain markings. It’s also a very light-weight wood. The pale whorl is complimented nicely be the Walnut shaft. I turned to Connie with urge to add a Holly spindle to my collection. She was truly wonderful and helped me choose the right size, weight and a matching wood for the shaft.

The larger spindle on the right is a Tracy Eichheim design. It’s his „Flowers“ motif in a rim-style design. Tracy is a very thorough and knowledgeable craftsman and his fancy spindles with the intricate scroll-sewn motifs are truly unique. I was lucky enough to get in an order before he closes his shop for the fiber festival season. I custom ordered my spindle with him and we e-mailed back and forth to get the specifications straight to which he then build this spindle. This spindle turns like nobody’s business and you get a lot of yardage on it without breaking into sweat.

Wood: Walnut, Birch
Weight: 38 cm
