I've been using my new Turkish spindle from IST Crafts ever since I received it. It is the perfect spindle for long, slow spinning that is more for enjoyment than quick, productive spinning. I started on a braid of Australian merino, probably at least 100g, so this is going to take some time to get through and I am in no hurry.
The spindle is a pleasure to use and I love it. There is an art to winding on the yarn just so. I have learned that this ball of yarn is called a tortoise - you'll see why if you have a look at the photo. I really enjoy winding the yarn onto the arms of the spindle in just the right way. It is as if you are creating a work of art, like the spindle itself.
