Drop Spindle

$14.99

An interchangeable Turkish spindle! This drop spindle can be used as a high or low whorl spindle, so it is perfect for new spinners who want to try out different spinning methods. To start spinning, attach your yarn or leader to the top of the spindle with a half hitch loop. As you wind your yarn around the arms of your Turkish spindle, you create a center pull ball! In order to ply your yarn, just take both ends of your center pull ball, and spin them in the opposite direction.

This spindle weighs 35 grams, which is a versatile medium weight spindle that can be used for both spinning singles and plying your yarn. Item No. 80700

I love it but I had to sand all the edges as it was rough and some splinters were coming off

4 out of 5 stars

Pros: It's the only top-whorl Turkish-style spindle out there that I'm aware of! The very thin spindle is actually more suited to that style of spinning, as it's very small in diameter, which gives good momentum if you're rolling it along your thigh. Winding on over the arms in the standard Turkish "under one over two" gives you a center pull ball when you're done! Cons: It comes unfinished and you may need to put a little yarn around the spindle underneath the arms to prevent them from slipping around until you get a good amount of spun yarn wound on.
