Item details

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.

from The Joy of Spinning by Marilyn Kluger
