A drop spindle is a simple, inexpensive device that allows you to design your own yarn for use in your hand hooked rugs.

Use the drop spindle to spin yarn from your hand dyed roving, or to ply two different types of commercial yarn together to make your own unique hooking fibre.  You can even spin your whipping yarn if you want.  And of course, the drop spindle can be used to create a knitting yarn also.

Kim Parkinson, Cornerstone Fibres, will be at Women Matters, Landsdowne, on Monday, November 4th to give us a demonstration on how to use the drop spindle.  Pass the word.
