The sturdy Swan spindle is perfect for DK/Sport/Worsted spinning, and learning to spin. With their longer sustained, and slower spin they are excellent to for learning to spin. Their shape makes them easy to park against your leg, or rest on the floor, while mastering the drafting technique. They’re also good to use for plying with their capacity to hold 100 grams.
Swan is our name for the older American concept of the Turkish style spindles.
