  leknai

 

Thailand

With a nai or lah, a loosely-coiled bundle of yarn or thread is tied to the reel which is placed on the spindle, a small axle of steel called leknai in Thai.

 

A piece of yarn forms a connection linking the wheel with the leknai-spindle, thus driving both when the wheel is turned.
