Beautiful spindles (I bought three, a mini glider, this glider, and a Reekalf). All are flawless spinners, but this is the one that surprised me because I never go for large spindles. Its light weight makes it nimble, and the unique Glider arms are a breeze to wind around! Superb service, fast delivery, this transaction was a delight. I already have more Snyder spindles in my shopping cart and have recommended them to a local yarn shop, too. Been spindling for 30 years.
