This is a beautiful handmade Turkish drop spindle. The cross pieces are Padauk and the spindle is hand turned from Walnut. Turkish spindles are very fun to spin on and you can even create a center pull ball as you are spinning. This spindle weighs about 18 grams and is suitable for spinning finer yarns. The cross arms on this spindle are about four inches and the spindle is just over five inches tall.

This is my first real experience with a spindle so I have nothing to compare it to, but I very much enjoy it. I'm having a great time learning to spin on it and have even been favoring it over my wheel.

I absolutely LOVE this spindle. I really like the finish that you put on the wood, so natural. I catch myself just running my fingers along the wood and admiring the wood.
