I just made a marvelous eBay score. I won the bid on a rare Mongold Spindle. Can’t wait for it to arrive at it’s new home.

The Mongold spindle is reputed to be an amazing spinner. They were made from recycled materials and are no longer being made. Each is etched on it’s face with a pattern unique to that individual spindle. This Norge Mongold Spindle will soon have a new tropical home. More after it arrives.

    Hello there. I own a Mongold spindle. May I ask how much you ended up paying for yours? I can’t remember where or when I bought it or what I paid for it. Amazingly, I am drawing a complete blank on it! I am told they are valuable. Thanks for your reply.

    I don’t know that Mongold were particularly expensive when they were first for sale. But, they are no longer being made, are great spinners, and have developed a trendy following, perhaps having been reviewed favorably in the text High Whorl Spindling. You may get an idea of their value by watching eBay where they appear occassionally.

    I bought my first Mongold and paid $40.00 Then I purchased the Nordic Mongold and paid about $45.00. I would like to find another heavier Mongold for plying.

    I noticed they are hard to come by.
