I ordered this days before a vacation, hoping it would make it in time for me to take with me, and it did! I love Scott’s spindles and customer service.

Spectacular spindle. Love it!! Thank you.

Like all the Snyder spindles, this one is effortless in spinning! It's a medium weight, and spins lace as easily as it spins a bulky single. The arms are long enough that a generous cop can be built up, all tidily wrapped up in a ball ready for the next step. Great service, fast delivery, have already ordered more.

Fast shipping, as usual, and perfectly packaged. A perfect addition to my growing Snyder Spindles family :-)

Absolutely LOVE this spindle! This is my first Turkish spindle and I love it so much more than a top whorl. The wood is stunning and smooth and it has a very balanced spin. Absolutely top of the line quality, will definitely continue to purchase my drop spindles from them! Thanks for the great product!!!
