Frustrated with plastic day-glo yarn bobbins that snagged and tore my yarn, I decided to see if I could make something still as practical but better looking and kinder to my yarn. And this is the result...

This listing is for 6 flower patterned yarn bobbins - the cost is for all 6 as most projects require 3 or 4, and let's face it a few spare is always useful!

They are made from wood but are still light enough not to add any unnecessary weight to affect your tension, and will take up to a UK DK/US sport weight. The bobbins are 8cm long by 2cm at their widest and varnished to minimise snagging.

To use them, simply wind your yarn around the bobbin, then once you've reached the desired amount, cut the yarn, feed it through the hole and start knitting. By feeding the yarn through the hole, it prevents the yarn from unwinding and because you manage how much yarn you have hanging from the bobbin to use, there is less chance of the bobbins tangling up. When you need more yarn, just unwind it from the back of the bobbin and pull through the hole again.

The bobbins and yarn shown in images 2-5 are for illustration purposes only.

Thank you for your interest in these and good luck with your knitting!
