I'm doing a research project on spinning prior to the 16th century. Specifically the type of spindles that would have been used (types, weights, etc.). Any help would be great. Pics, book recommendation, articles, etc.
You can do a search through the SCA guilds. One of them had some stuff about what type of drop spindles where used
If you give me some time I am writing an article for my website on the historical use of drop spindles but I am not sure when that will be ready
Do you need hand painted wool or hand dyed fiber feel free to stop by my store and see if there is anything you like
