Hi-Lo Spindles are designed with a brass hook at the top for high-whorl spinning and a grooved shaft for low-whorl spinning. Three sizes offer a broad spectrum of spinning capabilities:
The SMALL spindle weighs 31g and has a whorl diameter of 5cm. Choose this spindle for spinning lightweight yarns (approx. 12-30wpi)
The MEDIUM spindle weighs 62g with a whorl diameter, 7.5cm (3") which makes it suited for medium weight yarns (approx. 8-20wpi)
The LARGE spindle weighs, 85g with a whorl diameter of 10cm. It is ideal for heavy weight yarns (Approx. 5-8wpi)
When purchasing your spindle please ensure you pick the spindle that best correlates with the weight yarn you'd like to make.
