Yarn Ball Winder, Nostepinne, Ball Winder, Wooden Nostepinne, Black Cherry Wood
Here we have a solid Cherry wood nostepinne/nosty that has been individually hand-turned on the lathe in my shop. This is a great low-tech tool used for winding your own center-pull yarn balls. Totally portable, use at home or when traveling. The ball winding shaft tapers down to make yarn ball removal very easy. Burn lines are included on the handle for added decoration.
The piece is finished using walnut oil and beeswax. The walnut oil penetrates deep into the wood fibers to bring out the woods natural beauty while the beeswax creates a silky smooth finish and protects the wood for many years to come. This is a true hand-rubbed finish done right on the lathe.
Length: approx 9" long
Handle length: 5 1/2" long
Diameter: 1" tapering down to 3/4" (Shaft)
My Nostepinnes are made one at a time by me at a pace which allows for crafting a unique and beautiful addition to your home or collection. These make great gifts for the fiber artist, yarn spinner or knitter.
