Spinning with a drop spindle isn’t just fun – it's amazingly relaxing and highly creative too. You get to choose the type of fiber, and the colors and thickness of the yarn you make - you can even dye the yarn, and add beads, sequins and other embellishments to create your own unique yarns. A spindle is so compact, you can carry it around town with you and is not even necessary to have to spin. Be inspired and take your knitting, crochet, felting and weaving to a whole new level!
