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 Hickory, at the demarcation and predominantly Sapwood. The shaft is hand turned from Hickory.
This spindle weighs approximately 30.8 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 spinning and 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 had two of these spindles. The second one is not Shown and it has a Tiny bit on the corner of the smaller part of the whorl. It’s the only one I have left of these. Pictures available upon request.
I am happy to ship internationally.
Please feel free to ask any questions.
Turkish Spindles are very fun to spin fiber on, you create a center pull ball, and if you're a beginner beginner can utilize the park and draft method very easily.
