Niddy-Noddy hand turned from Sycamore by Cynthia D. Haney for winding skeins of yarn.
Niddy-Noddy is a tool for winding skeins of yarn. This Sycamore hand turned niddy-noddy will wind a two yard skein if all four points are used or a one yard skein if just two are wrapped. Great for finishing hand spun yarn and for preparing to dye yarn.

Why I make spindles. I prefer beautiful quality tools. I started hand spinning in 2011. Wanting my dream drop spindle I how to use the lathe and made it myself. Every tool I turn comes straight from my imagination. Then it has to meet perfectionist standards for function and execution. Every step is hands on, no duplicators or automated machines involved, further making one of a kind results. I sign all the tools with my initials, CDH in an interlocked monogram. Each drop spindle also gets dated, weight, and numbered in the order made.

Any spindle requests or questions please email me:
I want satisfied customers whose tools, functional art, work well. Please let me know if you are having a problem so I can work with you to resolve it.
