Knit Pro – Wooden Ball Winder


The shop is closed while we are moving into a new place. Date to be confirmed for re-opening in August. You can still order Gift Cards and PDF!

You are not a fan of all things plastic, yet you still would like a bit of help to wind your yarn skeins in balls? Knit Pro’s wooden ball winder may do the trick!

Handcrafted, this winder is made of birchwood, both solid and laminated. Massive and sturdy, it is fitted with rubber pads that give it steadiness, all the while protecting your furniture. Plus, its anti-friction bearings guarantee a fluid and smooth motion. And because of its size, it can take up to 450 grams of fingering weight yarn!

Our tip: place your swift (or whatever you use to hold your skein) at about 1.50m of the winder. If possible, pinch your yarn lightly between two fingers a few centimeters from the metal thread guide. This way, you keep a uniform tension while you make your cake, to obtain a tidy ball of yarn. Be careful to not wind your yarn at full speed too! It would stretch the yarn, and alter it, above all if you do not use it immediately after winding it.
