Navajo Spindles

Navajo Spindles

Sara Natani spinning with a Navajo spindleThe Navajo spindle is an example of a supported spindle and are commonly used by the Navajo and Pueblo Indian nations. The spinner sits on the floor or in a chair with the bottom part of the shaft resting on the ground and the top part on the thigh and the spindle is rolled up the thigh. After the spun yarn reaches arms length it is wound and stored onto the shaft just above the whorl. Using this spindle on a carpet or sitting it in a small bowl will help to keep it from sliding on the floor.
