Very Small Birds-eye maple Turkish spindle weighing about 0.7 oz. with an approximately 3.25 inch diameter whorl and a 3.1 inch poplar shaft. The smallest spindle I make and it is soooooooooo cute. This spindle is wonderful for spinning while sitting, as when traveling and is especially good for spinning cotton. It is best for fine yarn and is very compact to carry when taken apart. Can be used for spinning in a car or on an airplane or a boat but not while driving !
OK Val its, your turn - tell them what you think. It is wonderful for spinning cotton or other fine short fibers such as Yak but can also used with longer wool fibers too. I often spin on it while riding in the car. We have named this spindle The butterfly.
Please note the pictures are of the very spindle you would purchase. As the spindles are hand made there are subtle differences and sometimes not so subtle. I make a variety of shaft lengths and design so look at pictures carefully and ask any questions.
