Spindle, Quispe de Yucra, Pelagia, Culture: Quechua. Place made: Peru: Puno, Taquile. History of use:The 'kantina' or plying spindle is heavier and larger than the spindle used for spinning. It will keep spinning for longer and is not likely to break a yarn that is doubled or trebled. Although both men and women spin yarn, women usually spin the finer yarns used in warp-faced weaving.
