Mayan Paddle Spindle Spinners

Paddle Spindles have been around for some time, yet very few spinners know about them.  They work from the park and draft method of spinning, making it easy on those of us that suffer from arthritis, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia or tendonitis. 

The Mayan spindle is a great tool that takes up very little storage room, gives excellent control over the yarn as it is formed, and can be used in confined areas where a drop spindle does not have enough space to be effective.
The Mayan spinner comes in 2 pieces: the shaft and the paddle .

If you do a search for Mayan Spindles or Paddle Spindles you will find several wonderful videos and tutorials that show and explain just how simple and easy this spindle is to us.
