Designed and based on a viking age finding from Latvia in one of the main lakes, the Latvia or "Rusk" settlement was one of the largest viking age settlements active for several hundred years and was a major hub for trade.
My whorls have been designed to replicate a finding that i own which was originally casted in Lead which is the heaviest metal for the size though toxic to humans so i increased the size slightly to make up for the weight then casted it your choice of either Bronze or Sterling Silver.
Traditionally whorls were made in several kinds of materials such as bone, wood, stone, and metals. once crafting the whorl they would craft a tapered dowel from wood where you would spin the dowel using the weight as a centrifuge which spins the wool making yarn.
This size of weighted whorl was perfect for spinning fine thread used for embroidery.
These whorls are Solid casted and not made from cheap tin metals or plated.
