***The bowl in this particular listing has the three small holes filled with glaze, so they cannot be used to wind yarn through, only the three curved cutout sections can be used ****This listing is for an XL size yarn bowl grab bag. The contents inside are a surprise for you to discover when you open it up. The hints I can give you about your discovery are this: it may have a defect like a crack but it won't be something that affects the functionality, or safe touch, of the piece, it may be a pattern that I have tested and not otherwise put out for sale making it truly one of a kind, and it may be a glaze I commonly use but came out a little strange. The payoff for taking such a journey: a discounted yarn bowl sure to bring you great joy for years to come while you spend hours creating your own keepsakes.

A nice yarn bowl sure is handy to have when whipping up a project. The glossy glaze will help your yarn unwind from the roll effortlessly, gliding right along the surface giving some slack as you knit. The bowl will also prevent it from rolling off your lap only to chase it around the floor, and it will also help prevent tangles. The wide flat bottom shape is sturdy and not top heavy like many other yarn bowls out there, ensuring that the bowl won't tumble over on the couch cushion or your lap. This yarn bowl can accommodate up to six different yarns, depending of course on their weight and amount.

I threw the bowl on the wheel and used rope (the oldest known form of surface decoration on pottery) to texture the piece. The twist of the cord I use us the same twist that yarn has when spun, making it even more perfect. I cut the slits out and took special care to make sure the surface cut away was left smooth, making sure your yarn won't catch on it as you work. I then glazed the work and fired it to roughly 2200° F

The bowl is about 10" wide and 3" high, fitting a couple skeins of yarn comfortably.

If you spill anything on it while working, toss it in the dishwasher, the bowl will be safe.

Shipping, ugh, what a bummer. It's not just you, I'm not happy about how expensive it is either. USPS, UPS, FedEx, none of them are cheap. What I can offer you is 1) if you convo me your zip code I'll see if I can get a more exact, and hopefully lower, rate 2) if the shipping cost listed is more than $1 difference from the actual, I'll refund the difference 3) I can promise that all shipping materials are used (but clean!) to both keep down costs and help mama earth. I hope this helps!
