Cool.  I am certain you'll find some cotton there.  Bet you can find hemp yarn there too.  Now I'm super jealous.  I have been unable to find any of that stuff so far.

Quote from: Miss_Vicki
It is a shame though, because there is a small (albeit rather conceited) part of me that would have really liked for my first ever skein to have been spun on a spindle I could say I'd made myself.  Ha!   Roll Eyes

There's a little pride. On the other hand, there's a certain indignity to spinning on something that looks like this [if you scroll south]. Tongue

And I think fashions stop being trends once you hit sixty, so you shouldn't have any worries about flaunting your freeform floral future ponchos.

Wow, your CD spindle is waaaay better than mine snakeface.  And you named it too, aww.  I like that you used a bamboo knitting needle where I have used a thick plastic crochet hook.  Sure I didn't need to add a hook to the top of it, but is is so short and light.  I did have fun decorating it with my mini sharpies as it spun though.
