Item details

My modern interpretation of the turkish spindle. This is a larger version and weighs approx. 1.9 ounce. The whorl is 5.25 inches wide and shaft is 9.75 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 longer fibers like wool. Would also be good for plying.

This is not only pretty but spins very well and is durable.

It seems to be mid century inspired so I call it the moderne.
