This Indian-style brass support spindle is well balance and designed specifically for cotton spinning. Spin it on a flat surface in a shallow dish or bowl on your lap. With this takli, you will soon be able to spin cotton straight from a seed, puni or Spinners’ Cotton sliver.
For instructions on how to spin on a takli, watch Joan Ruane on YouTube or read her detailed, expert instructions at http://www.cottonspinning.com/spin/supportSpindle.html
We highly recommend Joan Ruane’s DVD Cotton Spinning with a Tahkli for an in depth look at successful cotton spinning on your takli.
