A working charkha (spinning "wheel" originally developed by Ghandi) that spins fiber into yarn. All yarn (with a little help from other fiber tools).
Actually, charkas have been around much longer than the european spinning wheels. you are mistaking the &quot;Traditional&quot; charka with the &quot;Book&quot; style charka. Ghandi started that contest to support self sufficiency. He wanted a more compact and portable device so that his peoples could start providing for themselves rather than just supplying the empires desires. but this is a wonderful Idea. I am going to have to try this. THis looks amazing!<br><br>
