The 3D Glider Turkish Spindle from Snyder Spindles is made from PLA with a Maple shaft. PLA is Polylactic acid, which is derived from renewable resources like cornstarch and tapioca roots and is biodegradable. The arms measure 4.75" and the shaft is 8". The shaft has a small finial to hold the half hitch. This spindle weighs 0.8 oz (22g-24g)
These spindles can melt in really hot temperatures, like 140-149 °F, so keep them where you'll also be comforable!
