I purchased a 4-clip yarn twister to more easily twist some fringe on a military sash I made for reenactments. I had high hopes that it would save me time and energy in finishing my project. However, what I discovered is that, since the fringe I needed to twist was only about 4 inches long, I could twist it more quickly with my thumb and index finger than the time it took me to clamp the yarn to each of the 4 clips, turn the crank a few times, and then unclip the yarns. I concluded that this device is really only useful when the yarns being twisted are long; short yarns do not warrant using this device. Bottom line is, I would recommend this device, but with the condition that it's used for twisting long fringe.

          simple but highly useful mechanism for twisting ringe and making rope. You should get one, you have no idea how useful it is until you have one. I recommend the 4 clip model, when you need the extra clips you will be grateful!

            Comments about Leclerc Fringe Twister:

            The Fringe Twister is sorta magical. It looks like all you'll get is a twisty clot of yarn, but when you tie the knot and let it go, POOF - you have a perfectly corded fringe.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Not thrilled with ordering process. Tried to apply an (admittedly) old Webs gift card, but the card was not used to reduce the cost of the order. I can accept that, if there are expiration dates (although none were displayed on the card) or if I didn't provide enough information (couldn't read hand-written sig on the card) but my real problem is that there was no follow-up. There was no phone call or email to tell me there would be a problem using the card - just the order at full price.

                  Used it once so far to make great fringe for a woven scarf. It makes all the fringe consistent. My manual efforts never turned out very well, but the Twister adds a professional finish to the scarf.

                              Previously I borrowed a twister from a friend which had a longer handle and I was concerned about securely holding the shorter handle on this one. I found the handle length doesn't really matter. It twists very nicely and actually it turns more smoothly than the one I borrowed. I'd recommend it without exception. Just one thing, the clips have strong, sharp teeth which is great for holding the yarn, but be careful to keep your fingers out of the way ... I speak from experience.
