Drop Spindle Spinning:
Spinners have been transforming fiber into yarn using drop spindles for 10,000 years or more,

long before spinning wheels were developed.
   Prior to the invention of the spinning wheel, spindles were used for spinning the thread

used for weaving into all fabrics including sails, clothing, linens and more.
Learn how to spin using this most basic method of spinning.
Drop spindles can be as primitive as a stone with a stick going through it,
to intricately crafted pieces of art. 
We will provide you a spindle with which you will learn to spin,
which will be available for purchase
along with our many other styles of drop spindles.
