These tiny spindles are astonishing at spinning cobwebs but their feather light weight makes them unsuitable for anything heavier, or for children.
Warning! Their minute size means they, or the shaft, could be easily lost. We will not be responsible for lost spindles or shafts. Ed makes two shafts for each Bee, one as a back-up shaft since it will not be possible for him to make a replacement shaft without having the spindle in his hands.
Bee Hummingbird spindles were developed by Ed in 8/2017, after years of trying to make the tiniest functional spindle that’s made by hand – no computer or high tech equipment involved.
