Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger on a spinning wheel and fell into a deep sleep. The kingdom could have avoided this problem had they just used drop spindles. Wool and other animal fibers can be spun into yarn using this tool. Recently people have started to spin newsprint, wrapping paper, and magazines with drop spindles.
