A nostepinne is a Scandinavian knitting tool used to wind your own center pull yarn ball the old fashioned, low-tech way.

Photos at right show beginning of winding process.

Unlike one of those hand-cranked, mechanical ballwinders, a nostepinne is practically unbreakable, completely portable, does not require clamping to a table, needs no batteries and will not frizz merino yarns.

Lathe turned from natural wood , each one is different and unique - no duplicators or templates are used.
Sanded at 8 levels to 1500 grit, for a shiny, satin smooth finish, including the grooves - no snags. All natural exotic wood.

This one is made of Dymondwood, which is made from 1/16 hardwood veneers that are vacuum impregnated with dye and resin. The veneers are layered and compressed under high pressure and heated to slightly over half the original thickness.

It is 10 1/2 inches long, with 5 inches of usable sloped shaft for winding, between top and bottom grooves, and is 1 1/8 inch in diameter at the widest point. Comes with directions for use, in case you have not used one yet. Great gift for knitters.
