Spinning with a Drop Spindle

We have been experimenting with making yarn with a drop spindle. I found this video, which has been most helpful, and I thought it might be helpful to others as well. We found our drop spindle at a museum gift shop, but they can be bought here.


  1. I got to use one when we visited Yorktown, and it was fascinating to try. I was going to get one at the museum store, but then thought "No, I've seen it over at Williamsburg, I'll wait until there." Of course I never saw it again at Williamsburg.

  2. That reminds me of an episode of the British comedy "Good Neighbors" - I'd love to try one of those.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
