Snyder Spindles Reekalf Turkish Spindles
The Reekalf Turkish Spindle from Snyder Spindles is handmade from black walnut or maple. The arms measure 3.5" and the shaft is 6" long. The shafts have a small finial at the top to hold the half hitch. The "Reekalf" (Dutch for fawn) Turkish spindle weighs 0.8-0.9 oz (22–26g).
Turkish spindles have the unique advantage of creating a cop that doubles as a center-pull ball or plying ball! The shaft and arms slide out of place once you’ve finished spinning, leaving both ends of your singles free.
