My modern interpretation of the turkish spindle. This is a smaller version and weighs 1 ounce. The whorl is 3 inches wide and shaft is 6.75 inches long. Whorl is tiger maple and the shaft is popular. All finished in flax seed oil. Tested and works very well and would work for all fibers but is especially good for shorter fibers like cotton. Would also be good for travel in plane or car due to small size to car and it would work in smaller spaces.
This is not only pretty but spins very well and is durable.
It seems to be mid century inspired so I call it the international for the architectural movement of the middle of twentieth century.
