Turkish Drop Spindle large This Beautiful Turkish Drop Spindle created by RileyWoodAndFiberArt is a medium and completely handmade from only the finest hard and soft woods from around the world. The cross pieces or "whorl" are handmade from Bloodwood and the shaft is hand turned from Walnut. Turkish spindles are very fun to spin on. With the idea that you're creating a center pull ball as you are spinning and winding on. And winding on has become an art in itself. This spindle weighs approximately 33.3 grams and is suitable for spinning finer yarns. The whorl on this spindle is about five inches and the shaft is just over 8 1/4 inches long. As with most of my spindles it's finished with an eco friendly danish oil. I am happy to ship internationally please contact me for a price quote.
