    A superior Turkish Spindle.

    The Turkish drop spindle is a favorite among spinners because you can take it apart for easy portability and wind a center-pull ball with your yarn as you spin it.

    It features a removable double cross-arm instead of a circular whorl. Once you are finished spinning or plying, the spindle slips apart leaving your yarn in a neat ball (see a demonstration in the video below).

    Our drop spindles are each carefully made to order by Allison Geary of Portland, OR. She was trained by Ed Jenkins who passed down the art of how to make an exceptional spindle. Allison spends a lot of time balancing each spindle to give it the longest spin possible. She also takes care to craft a superior fit and finish for each one.

    Spindles weigh 1.0 to 1.5 oz, making them suitable for spinning fingering and sport weight yarns. They are available in a selection of woods for the spindle and shaft. The spindle featured in the photography has a maple spindle and a walnut shaft. Please understand that each spindle is hand crafted and has its own character. The spindle you receive will vary slightly from the photograph.

    This design also features a compression slit where the double-cross arms lay on the shaft. This functions as a pressure release so that when the spindle is dropped, the chance of the arms jamming on the shaft is reduced.
