Welcome to Ed Jenkins’ Yarn Tools, home of the Ed’s innovative, creative styles of cross-armed spindles.
We are thrilled about the articles in both PLY and Spin-Off Summer Issues!
Ed Jenkins’ life passion is working with wood, producing items with creativity, ingenuity and years of experience. Each spindle and great wheel is made one at a time by Ed’s hands without computerized machinery.
Ed loves to innovate on the age old concept of Turkish spindle styles. To date he has created seven distinct, never-before-seen sizes and styles of spindles. These were all conceived in his mind and though months of trial and error working to perfect each new concept.
Ed buys all his wood from reputable dealers who care about the long-term sustainability of tree harvesting. Much of the wood we use was raised on tree plantations where the local people have a vested interest in planting and harvesting trees for sustainable economic growth.

She now runs her own business making the beautiful tools for crocheters and knitters. If you loved Ed’s hooks and needles you’ll love Allison’s work.
