The unique Scottish Spindle, also known as a Dealgan* in Gaelic. This version is made by Scott Snyder of Wisconsin. Used primarily for plying in the past, this spindle has experienced a resurgence of interest in recent years, and is now also used for spinning singles.
Available in Ash or Maple, with a rubbed oil finish. The Ash has a more defined grain, and is the first spindle in both pictures of the spindles side by side.
Ash spindles run just over 1 ounce, and Maple spindles run around 1.5 ounces.
Measures 8″ long, 1.5″ wide at the base.
This listing is for the purchase of one spindle.
*Dealgan, fairsaid, and farsadh are other Gaelic names for this type of whorl-less spindle.
