Details

I knit, my sister crochets, and neither of us had ever used a nostepinne. But a fellow wood turner had some nostepinnes for sale and his wife, who knits, showed me what the strange looking tool was for. Wonderful!! I had been hand winding yarn via my thumb!. My sister bought an expensive yarn winder, and was discouraged to find it did not work very well. Well, there is not much that can "not work" with a hand turned wooden nostepinne!!!

Hand turned from beautiful Bubinga wood, sanded to 1200 grit smooth, finished with multiple coats of wipe-on-poly, then waxed and buffed using the Beall Buffing System, this hand tool feels smooth to the hand. Decorated with grooves and burn marks, this is not a plain, simple hand tool, it is a future family heirloom.

Length: 8"; 3" circumference, 0.9549" diameter.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Thank you for viewing my turnings!!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

While the majority of my turnings are from salvaged or rescued wood, on occasion I do purchase and turn exotic woods. They are beautiful, and I do enjoy turning them. The exotics I purchase are from reliable, responsible dealers who harvest sustainably. This means that for every tree they harvest, they plant two trees to replace it.
