Aegean Spindles

Ed Jenkins’ most popular spindle made primarily with US domestic woods!.

In 2010, Ed Jenkins’ Aegeans were inspired by a spindle bought at a marketplace in Greece over 20 years earlier.
Ed’s design has thinner, more slender and straighter arms so the spindle is lightweight for its size.
Weight: 16 grams (0.56 ounces) to 34 grams (1.26 ounces) most are between 22 – 28g.
Fiber Capacity: 2+ ounces
Yarn Types: Fine lace up to Sport/DK (some of the heavier ones will handle worsted)
The wider arms give this lightweight spindle good stability.
Price: $56 ($58 – $60 for non-commercial woods)
S&H for 1st spindle: US – $7.70, Priority, Canada : $10.00 – $11.50 (based on weight)
International: $13.75, no guarantee of delivery once the spindle leaves the USA.

Aegeans are posted in the Store as Ed makes them.
