I learned how to spin yarn when I was 5 years old. Then I forgot it. Till some months ago, in cold winter, I started to think that I need mittens knitted from dog`s fur... One of my friends find fuzzy dog... I got fur :) tried to felt it, but result was not good. So I decided that I need to spin a yarn. And knit mittens. I remember that once I was able to spin a yarn using spindle....it was 35 years ago :)

I love challenge! So bought some wood... After several mistakes, broken pieces and cuts on my fingers, I got my first spindle. I am happy that I know how to use wood working power tools! I love it as much as felting, and embroidery with beads.

Well the first one drop spindle was ugly :)

Then I made more. This is one of the latest. I covered it with dark varnish, added metal parts on the top. Well, I love it! :) I am proud of that I can spin yarn and make my own spindles. Working with wood I found as enjoyable as working with soft fibers.

This drop spindle is 12" (30 cm) long. Not very light or too heavy. For me it is just perfect. Hope you will love it too!

This listing is for one spindle with some wool as gift. I will add different colors of wool for you to play with. For spinning you can use the some wool as for felting.

Last picture is me having fun with wood working power tools. One of my friends, Modris has good wood working power tools. I decided to make some drop spindles. He taught me how to make them. First ones was ugly and terrible.

NOTE! It usually shipps to USA and Canada in about 10 -14 days, to Australia about 14-21 days.
