Viking Spindles

Yes... Spindles were part of the norwegian culture. They have been used in the daily life until the spinning wheel was created and developed. Stones were carved into rings, decorated with simple carvings, and then each was attached to a wood stick, and voila, the spindle was ready: easy made, effective and most of all a survival instrument to defeat the cold winters.
