Egret Spindles

Ed Jenkins’ Egrets, created February 2013
Wanting a bigger, heavier spindle along the lines of an Aegean, Ed developed the Egret spindle which was unlike any Turkish style spindle found on the market by other makers at that time.

Weight: 28 grams to 52 grams Most weigh between mid-30 to mid-40 grams.
Yarn types: Lace weight up to Worsted.
As with the Aegeans, Ed primarily uses wood grown in the US, with a few exceptions, at his discretion.
Price: $62 ($64+ Unusual, or hard-to-source/non-commercial woods, or designs.)
S&H: US – $8.55 Priority
Canada – $11.75
International- $14.75 No guarantee of delivery once the spindle leaves the USA.
