Expertly crafted, beautiful tool. Arrived quickly and well-packaged. I am a novice spinner and this is my fifth Snyder spindle (2 top whorls and 3 turks of various sizes): I love the well-designed and well-executed ease of use, accessibility to order more and affordability. Thank you!

I love this spindle so much. It's beautiful in craftsmanship and looks. It spins beautifully. And this shop is always quick with the shipping.

I absolutely love this spinner!! Will definitely buy another! e

Spindle arrived in excellent time, perfectly balanced and beautifully finished. I spent a little while just holding it and looking at it--the purple heart wood is so rich! I've got some targhee going on it and it's absolutely satisfying. I've never had a Turkish spindle before, and this is a great first experience.

Loved my order! I haven't spun with it yet but the majority of my spindles come from this shop so I know it's going to spin beautifully.
