Paddle Spindle Mayan Spinner

'Mayan Hand Spinner' is a tool for spinning and plying fibre. Based on the design used by the ancient Mayans of Central America, Guatemala, the Hand Spinner is twirled around to introduce the twist into the fibres. This is an easy way to hand spin, allowing a lot of control of speed for the beginner. When a length of fibre or wool has been spun it is wound around the paddle and a further length of wool is spun.

You can spin quite a large ball on the Hand Spinner at one time. After spinning you can also ply your yarn on the Hand Spinner.

The Paddle measures 17cm long X 2 cm wide and the twirling handle is also 17cm long.
