Spindle Gallery :: Bosworth Midi Dogwood/Cochin Rosewood ::
Front: Bosworth Moosie, back: Bosworth Midi
Back in 2005 I bought a Bosworth Moosie. The whorl is Moose antler. Very lovely, very rare, very exclusive and today at a price where I might hesitate to buy one. A while ago I realized that the shaft on my Moosie spindle was split right where the hook sat. The Bosworths kindly offered to replace the shaft for no additional cost. Moosie came back in July all fixed and ready to spin.
And to keep Moosie company Sheila offered me this oh so pretty Dogwood Midi. I couldn’t resist. I’m absolutely helpless against pretty spindles.
Bosworth Midi Dogwood – This one is cut from a branch. Look at the pretty annual rings.
Shaft: Cochin Rosewood
Weight: 39 grams
