spinning cotton

April 8, 2011

— I can spin with one hand, yeah!

spinning Fox Fibre cotton on my tiny Turkish drop spindle “kuchulu” from Jenkins Woodworking . This is my favorite spindle, it only weighs 11gr. is made out of Zapote wood with a Bolivian Rosewood shaft. I take it with me everywhere in a little handwoven cotton bag. You would be surprised how much yarn can be spun at odd moments.

It’s tiny, that’s a Canadian $2 coin, a “toonie”, beside it to show the size.

I’m hoping to work out a pattern from  these baskets to use for weaving the cotton.

    I love spinning with spindles and this little guy intrigues me. Is it well balanced and does it spin a long time? Also, why is it your favorite?

    I have a Jenkins spindle just like that one, by no means can I spin with just one hand though!
