By popular request, there are several new drop spindle designs in

7 Yaks’ Etsy Shop.

The drop spindle kit includes a WPI (wraps per inch) & diz combination tool, 1 ounce (28 g) of mulberry silk and 1/4 ounce (7 g) of blue crystal angelina fiber.

Mulberry silk comes from the Bombyx Mori silkworm and is also known as Bombyx Silk or Cultivated Silk. These silkworms are raised in captivity and fed exclusively on Mulberry leaves.  Soft, smooth and lustrous with the ability to just suck up color in a dye bath. Beautiful when blended with other fibers such as wool, merino, camel, cashmere, yak or cotton. It spins to a luxurious yarn.

The drop spindles are also available individually.
