The perfect gift for any knitting or crochet enthusiast! The side of the bowl has a hand carved slit where you can feed your yarn through while you are working on a project without getting knots and tangles. For use with hand wound balls or any other type. Place the yarn in the bowl and then pull the working end through the slit feeding it through as yo do your project. The bowl is glossy and smooth so the ball will roll around and won't get stuck. There are also other holes available so you can do 2 color knitting for your projects.
