Materials: "Key Lime" Dyed Hardwood
I hand-turned this nostepinde from dyed and laminated hardwood whose bright colors are second to none! "Key Lime" Dyed Hardwood is composed of relaxing layers of indigo, turquoise blue, and lime green, reminiscent of a palm tree populated seaside; a relaxing sea under a brilliant sun. I love the patterns the colors make as they flow up the turned design -- like steady sensuous waves of color caressing every curve.
Super smooth and silky to touch! Total length is just under nine inches. Heirloom quality.
Smooth as glass, your fingers will wind fast as the wind, making a handy center-pull ball which is perfect for knitting / crocheting, or plying yarn. This simple, yet immensely effective tool traces its origins back to Scandinavia; noste - ball of yarn, pinde - little stick, literally translated means "a little stick for winding balls of yarn." I find the nostepinde indispensable when I do my drop-spindling as they are portable and provide a gentle way to ball yarn without over-stretching. Instructions included.

All of my items are tested for durability and strength. They're not simply ornamental -- they are fully functional tools and ornaments created with the finest materials and techniques in order for you to have a tool that is both beautiful and works comfortably and efficiently at the same time... just as it should.
I've been a fiber artist for over twenty-five years, and now use my experience to design one-of-a-kind items: from the tools of the trade (crochet hooks, knitting needles, spinning tools, etc.) to items of personal adornment such as hairpins, jewelry, and much more!
There is a wonderful joy to owning and using finely crafted wooden items: they're smooth, warm, and have the potential to become cherished heirlooms. Every design is gently enveloped in an exclusively designed fabric pouch, and comes with a gift card. My work is 100% guaranteed.
