Tahkli Spindle, Nickle/Brass
A style of support spindle from India, a Tahkli is mainly used for spinning cotton at very fast speeds. These well-balanced gadgets spin like the dickens and can be supported in a bowl, on a table top or any other smooth, flat surface.
Stainless steel shaft and brass whorl are relatively rust resistant. Other features and specs:
– small and lightweight: 18cm length (7 inches), 2cm-wide brass whorl (.79″) and weight of around 18g (.63 oz)
– shaft features a flat, hammered end with a hook, which helps to catch the fibres during spinning. The whorl end comes to a sharp point for minimal friction and fast spin. Don’t poke your eye out!
– ideal for spinning cotton, but also useful for other fine fibres
