I found the drop spindle is not balanced and would not spin clockwise, rather irritating.
The fiber is gorgeous.
I suggest a more professional drop spindle, as it could put off a new spinner.
This rustic handmade spindle is the best way to get started on your spinning journey. Not only is it a simple design for beginners it’s also a traditional design kept alive by the villagers of Meghalaya. No better way to learn a new skill than to actually help in keeping the craft alive amongst its natives.
