Turkish drop spindle medium Teak
This is yet another one of my beautiful handmade Turkish drop spindle. The cross pieces or "whorl" are handmade from Teak and the spindle is hand turned from Walnut. 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. 12.7 grams and is suitable for spinning finer yarns. The whorl on this spindle is about four inches and the spindle is just over five inches long. The board I made all of these from was incredibly beautiful, clearly seeing the difference in heart and sapwood very clearly in some pieces varying degrees some more some less. I am happy to ship internationally please contact me for a price quote.
