Nostepinne, Hand-turned Wooden Yarn Ball Winder, Cherry Wood


Shipping to United States: Free

Hand-turned wooden Nostepinne (yarn ball-winder), made from cherry, and finished with a light coat of beeswax. These are medieval tools for creating center-pull balls of yarn, typically in a flat "cake" form, but also as round balls.

The Nostepinnes are between 10.5 and 12 inches in length overall, and the "tip" of the tapered end is approximately 3/8" in diameter.

Due to the wood being a natural material, variations in grain pattern and color will occur. Occasionally, there will be defects in the wood (bark inclusions, small pockets, etc.); I strive to make sure that these will not affect the functioning of the Nostepinne. Because they are hand-turned, slight variations in dimension and form will occur.

The Nostepinnes have been sanded smooth, and finished with a light coat of beeswax rubbed into the wood.

If you desire something in particular (special notches, or no "bead" between the handle and the taper), or would like a different finish or size, don't hesitate to PM me.

I ship these USPS First Class Package, with tracking.

Beautiful quality and sturdy, works well for rolling up yarn scraps.

perfect! Exactly what I needed for winding larger skeins

First time using one of these and I like it. It's beautifully made and the wood is smooth and easy for yarn to glide on it for wrapping. Thank you🙂
