I'm trying to find a decent drop spindle, and it's looking like my best shot at the moment is ebay-- I'm having trouble finding a basic drop spindle anywhere else. There are gorgeous drop spindles made of all kinds of beautiful woods with inlays and all kinds of options elsewhere, but it's been difficult to find anything basic!
Anyway- on to my question-- for a beginner- is top whorl or bottom going to be easier to learn or does it matter? I'm looking at possibly getting
starter kit, especially since it has the book. I'm going to check to see what the local barnes & noble has in the way of books about spinning. I was also considering any of the spindles from Annie May's Spin and Wool Ebay store
. I love the handpainted designs!!
