Turkish Drop Spindle Medium
This Beautiful Turkish Drop Spindle created by RileyWoodAndFiberArt is a medium and completely handmade from the finest hard and/or soft woods from around the world. The cross pieces or "whorl" is carefully handcrafted from Teak and the shaft is hand turned from Cherry.
Assembled this Turkish Drop Spindle weighs approximately 12.7 grams and is suitable for spinning finer yarns. The whorl on this spindle is about 2 1/2 inches and the shaft is just over 3 inches long. This thing is tiny and very lightweight.
Turkish Spindles are extremely fun and satisfying to spin with. Creating a center pull ball as you are winding on. Winding on has become an art in itself. If you are familiar with the park and draft method, these spindles are ideal, and great for a beginner for the same reason. Although, I would not suggest this size spindle for a beginner because it is for superfine singles.
Have you ever wanted to make your own yarn? With this hand held fiber tool, creating a center pull ball is effortless. When Spinning your fiber, simply winding on makes it possible. Perfectly balanced and and an incredible joy to use.
