Rakestraw or Mayan Spinner
The Rakestraw Spinner is certainly an interesting spinning companion. There are simple means to spin besides the drop spindle, that started out as a rock on the end of a stick--this is one of those ways.
These Mayan Spinner-style spinners are great for anyone who struggles to use a drop spindle or who is learning to spin. If you suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, or tendonitis, you can carry on spinning with the Rakestraw Spinner. Wonderful for children, who pick it up straight away, for the elderly, and for everyone and anyone! It almost spins itself and can be more productive than a drop spindle.
