More About This Product

Spinning is just about one of my favorite activities in the world to do.

Before learning to use a spinning wheel, Renate Hiller (see video at left) taught me to use a drop spindle like this one. This is an ancient art that has been practiced by generations of women through the centuries.

It can take some practice, but is well worth the effort. I recommend that an adult learn first, and then help her child learn. A wonderful activity for a parent and child to do together, just as their ancestors did!
