Blackfoot Spindle

SSM-BFS

Availability:
1-3 Days

These Blackfoot Spindles were produced in coordination with Marilyn Wright (featured in Summer 2013 Spin Off magazine). They are handmade with a notch cut into the shaft that helps facilitate this almost lost spinning technique. Includes illustrated instruction pamphlet.

This technique of spinning was almost lost. At the turn of the last century the tribal elders of the Blackfoot Confederacy declared that all spindles should be burned and that there would be no more spinning.

A very relaxed way to spin on a unique spindle.

Features:

  • Shaft length: 16"
  • Weight:1 to 1.3 oz.
  • Whorl Diameter: 2.5"
  • Complete Illustrated instruction Booklet
