Way of twisting piles
The spun piles are twisted together for more resistance and for using warp in woven objects. A simple tool called “Spindle” performs twisting pile.

Spindle is a simple machine, made of wood, weighing about 200 gr. Each spindle consists of the following parts:

1-Central axis is a rod with 35 to 40 cm lengths. It is like rod of pareh, with a knot at start and smooth up to the middle and thicker at the end, not to exit the wheel from its axis.

2- Wheel is made of wood. There's a hole at its middle, as wide as diameter of the axis. Diameter of the wheel is approximately 10 cm, with a thickness of 2-3 cm.
