Drop Spindle Spinning

The girls and I are learning to spin using a drop spindle. It really gives an appreciation for the skill and time it took to make fabric and yarn before machinery. I read that girls were usually taught the skill at 5 or 6 years old. We made our drop spindles from instructions found on the net. We are having fun with it and it's kind of addictive. I'm not ready to give up the idea of a spinning wheel though. LOL
