This handy little Niddy Noddy by Katrinkles is used to wind the yarn you've spun into a skein off of your drop spindle or spinning wheel bobbin. Its press fit construction holds it securely together while in use, yet it easily collapses flat into two pieces for easy storage. It is easily taken apart and reassembled. The diameter of your skein will be 1 yard which also makes it useful for skeining smaller amounts of spinning. Its short length allows it to fit easily into your spinning bag, making this the ideal travel tool for any spinner. No more trying to jam a standard 3 yard niddy noddy in only to have it hang out the top!This affordable niddy noddy is laser cut from durable bamboo plywood. Each piece is hand sanded after laser cutting to smooth out corners and edges to make sure that your yarn slides smoothly off of each end. It measures approximately 4½"x 10" when assembled and 5"x 7"x ¼" when collapsed and inserted into its packaging. Your niddy noddy will arrive to you in a padded envelope in a reusable sheath made of elastic straps mounted onto thick cardboard. You may want to continue storing it in this packaging to keep both pieces together to ensure its longevity.
