I wanted to spin last night, but I didn't want to leave My Chair, even to sit at my beloved Schacht-Reeves wheel. Solution? Kuchulu.
I love Kuchulu spindles because they're so perfectly tiny that I can spin while reclining in My Chair, watching Netflix on my computer, blissful in my productive slothfulness.
This is a Kuchulu spindle by Jenkins Woodworking, made of snakewood and weighing 12 grams, which I got at the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival in 2013. The fiber is natural colored cashmere and silk from Abstract Fiber, which I got at the Hood River Spin-In last month.
What a gorgeous spindle. What a gorgeous bundle of fiber. I feel like I'm spinning silver.
