Spinning with Shetland Kit


We have run out of stock for this item.

Try your hand at drop-spindling with creamy White Shetland Roving paired with our handmade Paradise Fibers Artisan Drop Spindles. Our 29 micron Shetland top is light and soft with a gentle sheen and 3.5" staple length. Take your hand spinning to the next level with our well-balanced wooden drop spindles with a polished finish and 8" shaft which allows "down the thigh" propulsion for high-speed spinning. Enjoy tutorials from Schacht and Interweave sent directly to your inbox to help you get started hand spinning!

Each Spinning Kit comes with the option of adding a bottle of eco-friendly SOAK in either the reviving citrus scent Yuzu or the red-tea-inspired scent Celebration.
