Mini Turkish Spindle


These wooden Turkish spindles have been hand turned and crafted by a local wood artisan. They are mini spindles and make beautiful finer yarns as they are extremely light. I am self taught, and a beginner at best, so in my opinion, these light mini spindles allow a finer spin without snapping due to weight pull on the yarn. I also have a love for miniature hand crafted items, and as far as I am aware, these are the smallest hand crafted Turkish spindles in South Africa.

I have a range of imported fibres for spinning, as well as some locally sourced and dyed fibres. I will send a small sample of fibre with each spindle sold for you to try. I will also run a zoom get together to show you my basic skills to get you started. Obviously the date will be dependent on when you get your spindle, so I may do quarterly spin zooms whilst we are trying to stay at home and avoid covid. Let me know if you would like to zoom and I will add you to my zoom spin list.

There are two sizes of the mini, the one is 5,4 grams approximately, the other is 8 grams. Then there is a double spindle – which two arm sizes (6,2 grams and 8 grams)
