Well what is this?

A friend says she has antique spindles for me and here they are.  She thinks they are fiber related.  They are hollow wood tubes about 11 inches long with ends that screw in.

Are they holders for knitting needles?
I say that because Franklin Habit posted something similar on his Instagram this weekend.
They don't appear to be spindles. But have you tried to spin with them?

Don't know what it is but it sure looks interesting. Let me know when you find out.
