Turkish Drop Spindle large
This Beautiful Turkish Drop Spindle created by RileyWoodAndFiberArt is a large and completely handmade from only the finest hard and soft woods from around the world. The cross pieces or "whorl" is Purple Heart and the shaft is hand turned from Walnut.
This spindle weighs approximately 34.5 grams. The whorl on this spindle is about 5 inches wide overall and the shaft is roughly 8 1/4 inches long.
Turkish Spindles are very fun to spin on. With the idea that you're creating a center pull ball as you are winding on. Winding on has become an art in itself. These spindles are ideal when using the park and draft method. This includes learning to draft or embellishing or making novelty yarn.
All of the spindles here, unless otherwise noted, are finished with an eco friendly danish oil.
I am happy to ship internationally.
Please feel free to ask any questions.
Turkish spindles are for hand spinning and very fun to spin fiber on, you create a center pull ball, and if you’re a beginner, can utilize the park and draft method very easily. That’s because the whorl and shaft will sit on a table or couch without spinning or rolling anywhere.
