Swissmade Akha Spindle

CHF 30.00

Whorl: Walnut
Shaft: Beech
Weight: 10-12g
Length: 24cm
Diameter: 5.5cm

These beautiful hand made spindles were created in the Oberaargau in Switzerland. Due to the light weight, the spindle is mostly suitable for thin threads and can therefore be used for cross-stapled fibres like cotton. The slightly roughened surface and the good weight distribution make spinning a productive experience.

The Akha spindle is a traditional cotton spindle from the regions around Thailand and is spun with a long draw. Here you can find an old video of me showing how to spin it.
