The spindle known as Portuguese spindle is a tool that I consider to be unique, with regard to manual wiring. Its deceptively simple form only reveals its capabilities as we learn to work with it and deepen our knowledge.

Saber Fazer spindles are a version of the traditional spindle used mainly in Minho, improved in functionality through our experience in spindle spinning. It was changed in conjunction with Tita Costa, when we tried to have a spindle that we both would like to use, despite having different spinning techniques.

Only 25cm long, it can be used with or without spinning wheel. The meticulously sculpted groove allows it to be used as a normal drop spindle, if desired, and facilitates the beginning of learning.

All Saber Fazer spindles are produced in Porto, manually turned from the best woods, with precision and expertise.

I chose to produce the "standard" Portuguese spindle in maple because it is a very reliable wood without large density fluctuations along the trunk and that allows me to safely sculpt the groove. The finish is smooth and polished, without varnishes or waxes.s.

It is small, portable and certainly the most elegant spindle I know. It will be sent together with a sample of our Alentejo merino wool, so that it can be used right away!
