Wooden tools for spinners

£2.50

Product

Some useful wooden tools for spinners, knitters and crocheters.  I make all of these from my studio in Cheshire, England. 

I use a solid Beech-wood which is grown in Germany.  I much prefer laser cutting and engraving this to plywood because it is 100% wood, no glues or chemicals.

The grain on the wood is really close and beautiful, making it perfect for this range of products.

Straps - I have also designed straps in leather or cork that have a Chicago screw fixing.  This allows you to easily hang up your knitting tool or attach it to your project bag.

Wooden tools for other crafts - I also design and create wooden tools for crocheters, knitters and embroiderers.

 

Wraps per inch (WPI) tool

Approximately 9.3cm x 4.3cm, this WPI tool is great for checking the weight of your handspun yarn.  It's also a handy little checker if you have lost the ball band on your yarn and need to know whether it is 4 ply of DK.

You just pop your yarn through the small hole and then wrap it around the cut-out area.  The cut out is 1 inch wide.  You count every full wrap that you make in the 1 inch cut out, keeping your yarn wraps butted up against each other and under the same tension.  There shouldn't be spaces between each wrap and nor should it be squidged up.  When you have filled up the 1-inch space, take note of how many full wraps you made, unwind the wraps and use the guide on the tool to tell you what weight of yarn you have.

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

 

  

Spinners' tool

Approximately 9cm x 6cm, this spinners' tool is great for checking the weight of your handspun yarn.  As with the WPI tool (above), it can also be handy if you have lost the ball band on your yarn and need to know whether it is 4 ply of DK etc.

You just place your yarn in the indentation that best fits your yarn.  There shouldn't be spare space in the indentation, but nor should it be overspilling.  Once you have found the indentation that is just right for your yarn, flip the tool over to see what weight of yarn the number relates to.  I have tried to cover off standard UK and US yarn weights within this tool. 

The tool also has a hole for a strap.  You can see photos of the straps and buy them from within this product listing.

 

 

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating 

These wooden products were designed by me at KNIT IT - HOOK IT- CRAFT IT. The Beech-wood used is from Germany.  I design, laser engrave and cut the products in my studio in Cheshire, England. 

The straps are made from leather offcuts (origins unknown) and the Chicago screws are manufactured in the UK.  I laser cut the straps. 

Postage and Packaging

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
