This is a beautiful spindle. It spins evenly and is as described.


Lovely spindle, good spinning time, spins pretty fast. Held over 30 g of fiber with ease. Beautiful wood, fits together perfectly.


Wonderful quality, like all his other spindles! I was able to fit an ounce of fiber on the midi size, so I'm excited to see what I can do with this full sized one.


This is a beautiful Turkish spindle. It's very well crafted and wonderful to use- the wood is beautiful. I used this particular size to ply about 4 ounces of singles into one giant turtle, no problem. Shipping was very timely and the spindle was well packaged. Overall; A+ !


This is my fourth spindle and I love it just as much if not more than the others. As always the spin is terrific and so is the craftsmanship!
