Bee Hummingbird Spindles
The tiniest spindle Ed has designed! The Bee Hummingbird is the smallest living bird, so to the Jenkins Bee Hummingbird is the tiniest spindle! Each Bee will come in a little container with one extra shaft.
Bees will be randomly posted in the Store as Ed makes them.
In 2017, after countless attempts and years of trying Ed Jenkins was finally able to achieve his dream of making a super tiny, yet functional spindle.
1) These spindles are seriously TINY – they can only spin cobweb! They are not suitable for anything else.
2) Ed will not be able to make a new shaft for one if you lose or break it. The shafts are challenging enough to make for each individual bee that it would be impossible to guarantee it will spin well with a new shaft.
