Support Spindles

I recently purchased 2 support spindles. My friend Maureen has been showing off her support spindles at our weekly spinning get togethers. She has several beautiful ones. She constantly adds to her collection. I had never spun on one so decided to get one to try. I ordered a Russian spindle on Etsy from Spindizzychick. It's made from Blood wood and is great. I also got a wood bowl to support it and that is made of leopard wood. I then ordeed a Cashmere Russian spindle from Tom Forrester made of silk wood. I've been spinning Angora on that one. Now I'm hooked!!!! I have another on order from Lisa Chan. It's a hybrid Russian/French support spindle.
