Spindle Love

A fellow spinning friend from Ravelry gifted me with this wonderful handmade spindle recently.  She often walks in the woods and finds wooden treasures then comes home and releases the forms within creating whimsical, functional fiber tools.  I’m so happy to give this little Phang a home.  It’s right about 10 inches tall and fits in the hand perfectly.  There is a warmth in it’s handcarved lines that make me think the maker must be a pretty special gal:>>

I believe we both became interested in Phangs during discussions on Ravelry.  Tracey Hudson, who’s articles on her time in Ladakh were published by Interweave Press, was kind enough to share her source material and specifications which got us started on experiments.

If you’re intersted in real, visceral, authentic spinning then this is it.  Spinning not as a hobby but to produce yarn for the weaving of daily use garments in the Himalayas.
