Dave Carlson's Ring Distaff


Out of stock


Beautifully hand crafted by local sheep-shearer Dave Carlson, this Ring Distaff is an excellent accessory for any hand spinner, and is a true companion to Dave's Turkish Drop-Spindle.

This style of Distaff is designed to be worn around the pinky finger like a ring, with the fibre wrapped around the shaft. This allows for the fibre hand and arm to stay relaxed while drafting the fibre, and eases the tension often experienced while spinning.

Each Distaff is crafted one-of-a-kind from an array of different woods, and will vary from the one shown.

Each is approximately 7-8 inches/17-20cm long, with a ring diameter of 0.75 inches/2cm.

Hand-crafted in Alberta, Canada.

Our Prairie Wool Sock Guide

When choosing socks, the Original Wool Socks are the warmest, the White Wool Mohair Socks are the softest, and the Hard Workin' Wool/Nylon Socks are the most durable.


Our sock sizes correspond to men's shoe sizes or are slightly smaller. If you like your socks loose, you may want to pick the next size up. Most men tend to fit into sizes 10-12 or 13-15. Most women tend to fit into sizes 4-6 or 7-9. If your foot size is right on the upper border of a size range, we would recommend getting the next size up. This makes them a bit more forgiving when it comes to washing.
