Quill Spindle

Quill Spindle

The Great wheel and charkha are ancestors of our modern flyer wheels. Both used the same principle to spin and store the yarn. The wheel was turned by hand and the yarn spun off the point of a quill. Then the wheel is turned the opposite way to wind the yarn onto the spindle.

Fits Traditional, Traveller or Elizabeth wheels, single- or double-drive. Instruction leaflet included.

Three ratios: 14.0:1, 19.0:1, 26.5:1
