One of the very oldest of the world’s tools, still an effective way of making yarn: easy, portable, inexpensive. The Louet has a turned veneer plywood whorl (the bottom whirl has a hook on top, top whirl – hook on bottom); the Davidson has the hook on the bottom. The Schacht 4" and 3" are now "hi-lo", with a hook at the whorl end and a notch at the other, for either high or low whorling. The long-shafted Schacht Navajo is a hip-roll spindle. The Schacht Pear Tahkli has a brass shaft with a hook, a pear-shaped maple whorl.
