These Turkish spindles are beautiful pieces of functional art made by Scott Snyder in Wisconsin. Scott makes a variety of spindles in unique woods providing us with an ever changing selection of spindles.
Turkish spindles are unique, after you fill your spindle, you just slide the arms and yarn up & off the shaft, then slide the arms out of the yarn one at a time, leaving you with turtle-shell-shaped cop that leaves both ends of your singles free. You don’t have to unwind the spindle!
