Check here for how to get started on a Turkish spindle.



I’m a huge fan of Turkish spindles. They are bottom weighted and tend to be very stable. On top of this, when you spin, you create a centre pull ball on the spindle itself, which you can then use to ply with, without worrying about winding the single yarn off for plying.

These 3D printed spindles made by Jen Kemery of Turtlemade have even more advantages than most.

They are extremely well balanced, and have a lovely long spin, making them ideal for beginners. They won’t break when dropped, which is great even for experienced spinners – we all drop them sometimes! You can also use them as supported spindles as well as drop spindles.

These mini spindles are fantastically portable, as they’ll fit easily inside a handbag or project bag.  They are very light and have a medium-fast spin, making them ideal for fine yarns.

The measurements are:4″ shaft, 3.5″ arms

The spindle arms are made from PLA, which is a durable, biodegradable thermoplastic. Don’t worry! It only starts to biodegrade when exposed to extreme heat. Jen recommends that you don’t leave it in the car on a hot day. The shafts are made from moulded ABS plastic, which is known for its impact resistant properties. Handy for a drop spindle!
