Vindicated! Proof of spindle breeding
As you can see, here is a good example of spindle offspring. These spindles are from Quantum. The one on the left is a bubinga baby butterfly (say that fast more than twice), and the other is a canary butterfly. Even the names imply that spindles breed. So I obviously can't be to blame for the number of spindles in my possession, as they've quite clearly been doing the nasty when I'm not spinning with them.
Even these Powell spindles bear a striking resemblance to each other, indicating a genetic bond. There's 35g tiger maple and ebony and a 45g pau ferro and ebony. Virgin spindles that need a good spinning.
