  1. How does one determine which spindle is best for making singles? I’m fairly new to using drop spindles and haven’t used a Turkish one . Your suggestions are welcome.

    1. Hi Sue, Thanks for asking! I wonder if you received the email reply I sent on Dec 21st. If you didn’t it was caught in your spam folder…
      When starting out most people spin a thicker single which a spindle with more weight/mass can handle better. So, of the three types coming to the store today (Wednesday) either Egrets or Delights will work great. Other than having enough mass to counteract the energy of thick singles I don’t worry about spindle weights too much. If you tend to spin chunky singles then stick with either a Delight that weighs more than 25 grams, Egrets above 32 grams, or a Swan – to be posted in a few days.

      1. Boy your husband’s spindles are a success. They are ALL sold out. Bravo. Between you responding and Rebecca Mezoff adding her input, I won’t hesitate next time there are spindles for sale. Thank you. Sue
