SPINDLE (Heb. kîshôr, shaft). An implement, eight to twelve inches (twenty-one to thirty-one cm.) long, used in spinning. The rope of carded fiber or wool was attached to one end and the spindle rotated by hand. Thus the thread was twisted. In Egypt both men and women did spinning, but among the Hebrews only women did the work (Exod.35.25; Prov.31.19).
