Standard 3D Printed Turkish Spindles


These fantastic spindles are beautifully balanced, robust and very pretty to behold.  They’re made of biodegradable PLA (corn starch) and ABS (very robust molded plastic).

The measurements are:

7″ shaft, 5″ arms

Go here for a short tutorial on how to get started with a Turkish spindle.  I’m also offering a free 15-minute spinning consultation for everyone who buys a spindle from me.



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 standard sized spindles are fairly slow spinners, making them perfect for making thicker yarns, although they are light enough to make finer yarns too.

The measurements are:

7″ shaft, 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 molded ABS plastic, which is known for its impact resistant properties. Handy for a drop spindle!
