So, I have been watching a new podcast, Yarnrasing and I am loving it. I have been increasing my spinning, both wheel and spindle. I decided that it was finally the time to get that nice Turkish spindle I have been wanting. I ordered a different one than I had originally planned. I ordered this spindle from Threads thru Time. I recommend them, it arrived quickly, safely and is probably one of the best spindles I own. I will most likely order another one in the future.
With the spindle, I received a small amount of fiber to spin on it, which I must say was lovely to spin with:
Here you can see it's a little bigger than an avocado!
The wood is beautiful and it spins very nice.
A small bit of fiber was included with the spindle to try it out and it was lovely to spin with.
I made a mini skein, it is Navajo Plied and is only small bit of yarn, but I love how it turned out. I will probably use it for a row or two in a hat as a little detail bit.
I also ordered some fiber from there and have been spinning it slowly on the Turkish Spindle and will show you some of that in the near future, as I plan to spin for 30 minutes a day during the Tour De Fleece!
