A niddy what? A Niddy Noddy. These have been around since ancient times, in one form or another. They are used by spinners to simultaneously measure yardage and make a skein.
This one is hand made by me, from 3/4" and 1" solid Mahogany dowel. I've threaded the ends so it screws together making it collapsible - you can take it with you, or store it easily. Finished off with linseed oil.
This niddy noddy is a 2 yarder. That means that for each revolution you make with your yarn, you will have measured off 2 yards.
Here’s an old song about niddy noddies:
Niddy noddy, niddy noddy
Two heads, one body,
Here's one, 'Tain't one
'Twill be one, bye and bye.
Here's two, 'Tain't two,
'Twill be two, bye and bye.
