Designed and made in Australia, this easy-to-carry gadget is almost as small as a credit card and features four handy functions for fibre spinners:


Determine the angle of twist in your yarn by lining it up with the vertical lines, then slide it across the gauge to find the degree-line that most closely matches the angle of your twist.

Alternatively, centre your yarn over the crosshairs at the bottom of the gauge, then tilt the yarn until the twist lines up with the centre vertical line. Your yarn will then be lying on the angle that indicates your degree of twist.


Lay your yarn vertically along the twist angle gauge, then refer to the arrowed dot symbols at either side to determine at a glance whether you have an S-twist or Z-twist in your yarn. This is useful information to judge your yarn's compatibility with your knitting style (Eastern or Western) or whether it will be more suitable for knitting or crochet.

• 2 x RECESSED RULES (in & cm):

Count the number of stitches in your swatch per inch or centimetre, or use the recesses to wrap your yarn and determine its WPI rating.


Quickly check your yarn's WPI as you work. Just lay your yarn in each groove, and when you find a groove that gives your yarn a snug fit, the corresponding number indicates its WPI rating (from 60wpi to 4wpi).


We've incorporated the functionality of our popular Fibre Catch tool, allowing you to keep your yarn from unravelling while you take a break from spinning. Simply use the clasp provided to hook the tool to your spinning wheel, then use the notches just like our Fibre Catch.

Fits easily in small places and has facility for an additional split ring to be attached next to the lobster clasp, so that you can hang the Spin Buddy on your keyring or craft bag.

I really like that this handy tool has everything in one place (wpi and metric, angle of twist, yarn thickness comparison), and the slot to hold your working fiber is an added bonus. I had one of three cards arrive cracked, and Marc took care of a refund for that right away. The shop was quick to get my tools shipped and very responsive! Highly recommended!

I LOVE this item so much. I use it every day. It is by far the best spinner’s control card I have ever had. It goes beyond that, however. The features are addictive. I love the fiber catch at the top. It is nicely habit forming. I find that I will squeeze in little bits of spinning because I know I can just slip my work into my card and then pick up without worrying about the twist running up. The clasp is very nice and very durable. The card itself is thick and strong, very easy to read. I like the grooves for tpi and the twist angle is very nice on the bottom. I will be ordering another for my other wheel.
