Niddy noddies are used to make skeins from your handspun yarn coming directly from the bobbin on the spinning wheel.

Ashford's traditional, unfinished turned niddy noddy is an economical choice that lets you choose the finish you want. This is the regular size niddy noddy, which means it creates a 54" skein. Wind the yarn off of the spinning wheel bobbin onto the niddy noddy. Because you know the length of each round, you know the length of yarn you have for your project.This makes for quick winding, washing, drying and calculations for warps.

The niddy noddy is a very useful accessory for winding yarn from the spinning wheel bobbin and creates a 1.372 m (4.5ft) skein. Made from solid turned New Zealand Silver Beech hardwood, the specially shaped crossbars allow the skein (hank) of yarn to slide off easily when made. It is easy to dismantle for storage or transportation, as the end pieces come off for flat storage. Niddy noddy comes with Ashford instructions.

Ashford recommends finishing this with natural Ashford Wax Finish or with tung oil. Oiling protects the wood, adds a beautiful golden sheen, and will not harm or stain your yarns.

Frequently asked questions about LadyDanio

Many of the items I create are handmade at the time of purchase, and the time it takes to put your order together can be anywhere from 3 to 7 business days (10 calendar days).

Don't know when your order is due to ship? Select "Purchases and Reviews" under the drop-down menu in the right hand corner of your screen. There you will see your order and if you click on "Receipt" you'll see the estimated date your order is due to ship.

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them, especially during high ordering periods. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose. See my shop policies for more details on shipping.
I'm happy to make free repairs to stitch markers that have fallen apart from being worked hard and well-loved. Just send me any damaged markers (don't forget the important pieces, like the beads because I'll need those!) and I'll restring, rehang, and make them as good as new. Then I'll send them back to you free of charge.
Miniskein sets are handmade at the time of your order. Multiple sets may be purchased - just message me if you'd like a larger quantity then what is currently available in the shop.

Pictures of the miniskein sets are a representation of what you could receive from my collection. For those miniskein lovers who'd like to see what some of the yarns they are purchasing look like, take a peek at the full skeins in my Mini Made Flickr photostream: www.flickr.com/photos/ladydanio/sets/72157628409098037/
Please note that my items come from a smoke-free, cat-friendly household. Though my cat does not play with my products (she is totally bored by the knitting process), be aware that a wisp of stray hair could make its way into your package.
I describe and photograph my products as accurately as possible using a Panasonic DMC-LX7 camera with a Leica macro lens in natural lighting.

Due to variations between monitors, your personal monitor settings, minor variations of daylight, color filters, or the uniqueness of the products themselves, the items you receive may vary slightly from the photos you see.
