The Scrolled Turk™, a Turkish style drop spindle with cutouts, is a Jeri Brock original design. Born of my love of fiber arts and woodworking, specifically scroll sawing, the Scrolled Turk™ is not only a great spinning spindle, the designs let you express your individuality while indulging in your art.
The large Scrolled Turk™ is perfect for plying. Of course you can use it to spin singles, but the 6" arms ensure a long spin while providing storage for as much as 4-5 oz of plied yarn (provided your plied yarn is strong enough to suspend the combined weight of the spindle and the plied yarn). Also, the 9" shaft is long enough to potentially thigh roll.
New in 2021, the Manatee has been on my list of patterns to draw for quite some time. On the large version, I had enough room to add a calf trailing behind. One of my favorite things to do during my exile in Florida was to go to the boat landing in Safety Harbor and watch the manatees swim around and under the dock. They are so graceful and very meditative to watch. Pyrography details and shading really bring these gentle giants to life.
