im very much looking forward to joining in,
I didnt have a spindle and so asked my grandmother-in-law. lucky for me, both my grandmother in laws live near by and combined can do/ have just about anything and everything. so i asked if she had one, and this is what she gave me
now it looks a bit different to the ones ive seen on google and here.
its what the locals here use (in estonia) so its definately good.
the whorl is made from dolomite, and this makes it very heavy compared to a wooden one,and that i have to spin over a mat.
does this mean a thick yarn would be spun best? please advise
