Hi Lu,

I learned to spin on a wheel, then tried out spindles. You might want to look into a Turkish spindle, as these are easier to start out with than some other drop spindles. And you can carry your spinning along with you!

I have found that using a spindle is a great way to develop your control of the fiber and generate a more even yarn.
