Was looking for a way to get a taste of spinning yarn, without having to Buy actual spinners. This could be a good idea! Thanks!

how the fuck does that knot work???

And I'm going to go sacrifice my cheapest fidget spinner for this. So cool, that for posting it.

K Allen says:

Love this, thanks for showing the method of using the fidget spinner on a stationary dowel. A lot less effort than Mayan spinner. Would require even less effot if the stationary dowel (with the dowel going through the center hole) were secured by a clamp or vice grip.

I hate fidget spinners, but THIS makes me love them! Superb idea! Thank you!

Katherine Haigh says:

This made my day 😀

Mary Dixon says:

I would make it stationary and spin it with one hand while holding the roving and drafting with the other. It might be more like a walking wheel on a smaller scale. Hmm…now I have to get that fidget spinner thing. I love the idea.

Deborah Jabara says:

can you use the holes in it to ply yarn?

Brilliant! Where do you get those bell shaped hooks?

Where did you get the spinner? All the ones available on Amazon don't have the middle hole!!

Jonathan Rodriguez says:

I wonder if this would work with silk since silk has to be introduced with a lot of twist
