Top Whorl Spinning


DH made me this top whorl spindle as an extra Christmas pressie. I have the book 'Spinning in the Old Way' by Priscilla Gibbs and thought I would give it a try. It isnt any more difficult than spinning with my usual bottom whorl spindles and I have taken to it quite easily. I love the new shaped hook DH tried out on me and he now has all my other spindles to put the new hooks on!!!

That is the most beautiful spindle.
What wood is it?

Thank you, it is a Mahogany whorl and a beech shaft.
