Rakestraw Spinner in Cocobolo

The Rakestraw Spinner is different! Unlike a regular drop spindle, the Rakestraw Spinner never drops; it just spins and spins. You whirl it like a party or football rattle and it's even more fun than they are!

The Rakestraw Spinner blade comes in a range of beautiful exotic woods and is supplied in its own cotton tote bag. You can spin all kinds of fibres such as alpaca, angora, bamboo, mohair, silk, etc and all of the wools.

The Rakestraw Spinner is your spinning companion no matter where you are. The Spinner is extremely portable and perfect to take on holiday. It is only 7 inches long and one 1 inch wide but much less fragile than a drop spindle. You can use it on the train, bus or car, or even when walking, either close to home or far away.

Cocobolo is a very dense, heavy and attractive wood with streaks of red in brown and spins evenly and effortlessly.

Price includes one Rakestraw Spinner with blade and handle, cotton tote bag and instruction booklet.
