Akerworks-Drop Spindle Starter Kit

Your Starter Kit includes one Medium Geranium Whorl, two 10" Spindle Shafts with Hook Protectors, one 12" Spindle Shaft with Hook Protector, four TensiTamers, two 2 oz. balls of spinning fiber, and one Cardboard Box (your DIY Spindle Kate).

The included fiber is luscious Bluefaced Leicester (aka BFL) wool top from the great folks at Laughing Lamb Fiber out in Nebraska. BFL is widely considered to be the best fiber with which to learn to spin, with its balance of long fiber (for ease of spinning) with soft feel and good luster. 

The Kit also includes instructions and links to detailed video guidance.
