This is my take on a Scottish style drop spindle.
This spindle is wound like a nostepinne and the yarn is secured by running the spun single through the notches on the bottom before securing with a half hitch on the top.
I've added a small bell shape on the bottom, This puts the notch not only on the bottom but also the side. This makes the notch easier to find and reduces if not eliminates the single from slipping out of the notch when bringing the single to the top to make the 1/2 hitch. It's a simple little thing but works.
As seen in Spin Off magazine.
Here's a little tutorial video of me spinning on an earlier version
These spindles also work great as a nostepinne.

This is the second spindle I’ve purchased from this shop and I absolutely love it. I’ve never used this style of spindle but I’m really enjoying it. Definitely recommend this shop for any type of spindle on your radar

My first Scottish style spindle. Lovely ash wood, very smooth and nice figuring. This spindle spins in a burst of speed. Thank you!

Really lovely spindle, nice finish, spins well. I'm glad I found this style with the flared bottom on Etsy because it's much more elegant than the plainer versions.
