A handsome hand turned red oak nostepinne, featuring an accenting grain filler and a satin finish for comfortable, smooth, snag free operation.
Before there were mechanical devices to wind yarn, nostepinnes were used to make center pulled balls of yarn. Many today still prefer them for their simplicity and portability.
Like all of my turned items, only my foot powered pole lathe and a few hand tools are used in the making. This is a tool you will enjoy for years, and can pass on to future generations.
Dimensions 11 1/4" long by 1 1/2" in diameter at the widest point, weight 4 ounces.
