Our fifth Advent calendar post 2021 is:
A selection of glass spindle whorls. All from the city of Sigtuna, Sweden. The world are all dated to 11-10th century. The vary in shape and weight. But are still pretty small.
When spinning we like to have different sizes. When spinning a thin thread a light whorl is good.
The whorls can be found in the collections of Sigtuna museum.

Was there any evidence of the spindle lengths used with these whorls?
Very few stocks have survived to modern times. But it can be both short and long.
