My b/f bought a kit for me while we were in the yarn store. It came with hand dye merino rovings and a painted bottom whorl spindle.. the roving's are soo soft and beautiful. The spindle is lovely.. but it is sticky to the touch due to the paint. The paint causes the fiber to stick to the spindle. We try to sand it off until it was less sticky. So, I tried spinning it and it didnt work.. Is the top whorl spindle better because of the little hook?
