What is a Yarn Buddy? Simply put, a fantastic tool created by George Sundstrom to keep your yarn untangled while you create!
Wind your skein of yarn into a center-pull ball, however DON'T pull from the center strand. Place your yarn ball on the center spike and pull from the outside strand, and your yarn will turn effortlessly on quiet ball bearings, and you will knit or crochet, weave or create without your yarn becoming tangled or twisted!
Our beautiful Yarn Buddy product was created by George back in 2007, and each is still hand-crafted by him in his woodshop on our farm in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. As each tree is unique, so is each Yarn Buddy. Handcrafted from solid wood, each Yarn Buddy is sanded several times until it is as sooth as glass, and then it is sealed with wax to ensure durability. Three rubber feet are attached to the base, to ensure your Yarn Buddy will remain where you place it, without teetering or scratching the surface you place it on.
The dimensions of a Single Yarn Buddy are 4-1/2 inches wide and 7" tall --
The dimensions of a Double Yarn buddy are 10 inches wide and 7 inches tall.
We ship our Yarn Buddies all over the world -- and they make the perfect give for the creative person in your life (or for yourself!!!)
All of our Yarn Buddies are handcrafted of reclaimed or sustainable wood and are invidually numbered one-of-a-kind orginals.
