Spindle Love

Delicate Lovely Turkish Spindles have taken over my spinning. This small one is just perfect for lace weight yarns. BFL and silk spin up like a dream on this.
The thing about these little spindles is that one is rarely enough. Three or five are even better. Even though you can make a pull ball or two and then ply onto the same spindle it is fun to play with several.

Mesquite and Cocobollo woods.
For the serious spinner a couple of Ashford Travellers all stained and put together and ready for new homes. This is such a nice all purpose wheel and like all the Ashford's they are solid workhorses.
