Wood: Russian Olive (non-commercial)
Weight: 40.62 gr / 1.433 oz
Bigger than an Egret! (Business card to show size)
These big spindles aren’t fast but they’re good for spinning lofty yarns and for plying. A Phoenix can hold well over four ounces/ 112 grams; the prototype Phoenix plyed 8 ounces in one turtle!
The Phoenix was designed especially for people who have no desire, or space, to own a spinning wheel.
