I've been doing more spindle spinning as I read "Respect the Spindle" by Abby Franquemont. I received this Tulipwood & Maple spindle from Steve and Connie of Spindlewood Co on Saturday. I have a 2.25" square spindle and a 2.75" square spindle. This one is 2.5" and completes my Spindlewood set. Connie and Steve worked within my specifications to create this 1.3 ounce spindle that spins perfectly. It spins for so long that I have to stop it from spinning so I can wind my single on. I especially like how stripey the tulipwood is. The maple compliments the tulipwood very nicely, too. I was quite inspired by my new spindle and got a good bit of spinning done. Spindle spinning just a few minutes each day adds up to make some pretty 2-ply yarn in no time.
Thank you to Connie & Steve for all of their help with my new spindle.
