These Indian-style Tahkli spindles provide the handspinner with a portable and efficient method to spin cotton roving or cotton lint. The thin shaft, heavy whorl, and very pointy tip allow the tahkli to spin very fast, making it the perfect tool for spinning cotton or other short fibers such as cashmere, quiviut, or yak. Tahkli spindles are a type of support spindle, meaning that a small bowl is used to support the spindle as it is used.
Spindles measure about 6.5-7 inches (16-18 cm) long, with a 1 inch (2.5 cm) whorl diameter, and weigh between 0.5 and 0.6 ounces.
