The Akha Spindle

The Akha Spindle is used for spinning cotton into thread for weaving.

Many western women have picked up the hobby of spinning with an Akha Spindle.

You can order one from us for $25 plus $5 shipping and handling.
Overseas orders are $25 plus $10 for shipping and handling.

Akha natural dying is still common in Burma.

We've just added three photos of a woman in California who is using the Akha spindle now for spinning SILK, YES!!!
