About Us

Wood artisan Jonathan Bosworth has been making beautiful tools for spinners for nearly 40 years. His top-whorl drop spindles are known around the globe for their superb spin and balance. A variety of domestic, exotic, and reclaimed woods provide a wide range of available colors and weights for beginning spinners and professionals alike.

Jonathan’s charkhas are also known for their exquisite craftsmanship and are as beautiful as they are functional. Conveniently portable, they are available in book and attache sizes.

Bosworth Spindles offers a wide variety of outstanding handmade tools including shuttles, niddy-noddies, bobbins for Journey Wheels, and carrying bags for our charkhas. We also stock tutorial books and DVDs as well as wood and hand care products. We aim to provide all the tools you need for your spinning passion — you just provide the hands and the fiber!
