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 standard Scrolled Turk™ is my go to spindle for spinning singles. I may be biased, but I love these spindles, and I love this size. It's small, but not too small, making it easy to pack in a purse or bag for spinning on the go. It's not too light and not too heavy, with most of the standards being in what I consider the spinning sweet spot, 0.75 - 1.0 oz (some wood and pattern pairings may be lighter or heavier). Whether you're spinning laceweight, fingering weight, or heavier, this spindle will get the job done.
The Whale Tail pattern was inspired by a trip to Alaska. During that trip, everything was about the whale tail, or fluke. It was on jewelry, artwork, and clothing. It seemed very fitting that it also be a pattern for my spindles. Originally, it was only available through a local yarn shop up there as an exclusive pattern. Sadly, that yarn shop eventually closed, so now the pattern is available for everybody.
