Tiny Turkish Spindle

OK – I think this is officially the cutest spindle ever.  It’s so tiny and yet so useful.  Gorgeous black palm wood and bocote shaft – only .6 ounces.  It spins fast and I can get a lace weight.

It fits in the palm of your hand or in your pocket.

So there you go – they feel like potato chips – I may need more than one of these cuties.  You can find them on Etsy at Threads Thru Time.  Super fast shipping too – I bought mine early Monday morning before I went to work and had it by Thursday afternoon.  It’s test spun before it ships and they supply a nice little amount of roving to play with once you get it – so you can start spinning right away.

      I’d just like to be able to spin on a spindle. Sadly, I’m not very good at it.
