This is a beautiful handmade Turkish drop spindle. The cross pieces or whorl are handmade from rift sawn White Oak and the spindle is hand turned from Maple. Turkish spindles are very fun to spin on and you can even create a center pull ball as you are spinning. This spindle weighs approx. 15 grams and is suitable for spinning finer yarns. The cross arms on this spindle are about four inches and the spindle is just over five inches tall. I am happy to ship internationally please contact me for a price quote.
