As always, a beautiful spindle. I have ordered a number of Scott Snyder's spindles over the years. They are always excellent! I love this particular one, a turkish spindle, made with cherry and with cat cutouts. I didn't need it, but the cats were too perfect to resist. It is so carefully crafted, spins so easily, and is a weight I enjoy. I also (always have) appreciate the little wool related extras Scott includes. This time it was a tiny 3d sheep. Scott, thanks so much for another exquisite spindle. It will be used and cherished!

Beautiful! Have no idea how they got the cat cut-outs so clean. I'll probably buy another for a friend.

Love your spindles! My husband asked what kind of spindle is that! Told him a Turkish spindle of course the why was next. You have a center pull ball of yarn when done. Easier to ply. Your work is excellent.

Pretty and well-balanced - I'll enjoy using it! Packed well and shipped quickly.

Haven’t used it yet. It’s a beautiful spindle. I love the kitty. It’s number 5 in my family of Snyder spindles. The others work very well, I expect this one will be even better. Thanks muchly!
