Being the over exuberant crafty type that I am, I couldn't wait to buy one. I couldn't decide which type I wanted, or who was a good supplier, and it just made more tense to try out on something I could put together than spend a lot of money on something I might end up hating...as if I could hate a craft...! HA!
It's not balanced correctly, so the spin is a bit off, but I did get it to spin some fiber. So it wasn't a total waste of time.
And just in case you're not the crafty type or you would rather just buy one, you can check out the seller I go to on Etsy - The Dancing Goats. Robin makes the most beautiful spindles, each with care and love and from upcycled bits of wood!
So I'd love to hear from you! Are you a spinner? Do you use a top or bottom whorl spindle? Did you make your own? Do you have another tutorial you liked? If you're new to the blog, make sure you join my newsletter and connect with me on social media too!
