High Whorl Handspindles

The Hatchtown high whorls are easily organized into two families based on their construction:

  • first family:
    • Kaari™,
    • Amelia™ &
    • UpSide Down Spinimal
  • second family
    • 12″ High Whorl &
    • 14″ High Whorl
…some spinners want the whorls
on their high whorl spindles to be notched.


Low Whorl Handspindles

Our low whorl collection also breaks down into two groups:

12″ Low Whorl & 14″ Low Whorl
….formerly known as the Production and the Fancy
Spinimal™ — the most minimal low whorl spindle

Of course, it cannot be that simple — the shaft of any of the low whorl spindles may be topped with any of the following:
