Spindles and textiles have been with humans since early in our history, and they continue to exist in our lives today. We make yarn, string and thread with spindles, and much of that is and was incorporated into textiles.
Perhaps you will be inspired to learn to spin or further investigate the history of textiles and the creation of them.
I make yarn - you can see my handspun at my site, stoneleafmoon. stoneleafmoon.com
