Katrinkles One Yard Niddy Noddy
Katrinkles is an independent, female owned and operated business that provides high-quality tools made from locally-sourced materials. All products are made in house with care, in the USA, by a small and dedicated team.
This handy little niddy noddy tool is used to wind the yarn you've spun into a skein off your drop spindle or spinning wheel bobbin. Not only is it a great tool for any spinner, any knitter or crocheter to use it to determine how many leftover yards you have!
Its press fit construction holds it securely together while in use, yet it easily collapses flat into two pieces for easy storage. It is easily taken apart and reassembled. Made from bamboo. 4.5" x 10" when assembled, 5" x 7" when collapsed.
Assembly & Instructions:
To assemble, hold a piece of the niddy noddy in each hand and match up the slots. The two ends will be perpendicular to each other with the long part of each piece forming the center shaft as they come together. To use your niddy noddy you'll be holding it at the center of the shaft. Start by wrapping the loose end of the yarn around the top left end a couple times, trapping your initial wrap underneath your working yarn to secure it. From the top left you'll cross down and under the right handle, then back up and over the left end of the top handle, then back down under the right end of the lower handle. Once you're out of yarn, weave the loose ends of your skein through to secure them and prevent tangling. Then slip the yarn off the ends of the niddy noddy handles. To twist the yarn into a skein, slip the fingers of each hand through either end of the skein and twist in opposite directions until the yarn twists back onto itself. Tuck one end into the other and you have a twisted skein.
