Item details

With little stars cut out for the thread to pass through, this yarn bowl will stop the yarn skidding around under the furniture and picking up all that fluff you've been meaning to vacuum out from under the sofa.
Also useful for keeping the cat away from the wool!
The bowl was thrown by me on my pottery wheel using strong white stoneware clay and then carved it out whilst still damp.
I've also cut a notch in the back for those who like to take their project out from time to time.
I've finished it in a pretty mint green ash glaze
The bowl measures 13cm ac ross the top and 12.5cm high.

I am happy to post anywhere---contact me for more specific prices, and I offer a combined shipping discount....applied at checkout.
Thanks for looking.

I offer a shipping discount for one or more items, which you will find at the checkout stage.

I generally send items with the Royal Mail 2nd class service which is very efficient and often seems deliver the next day. If you are in a hurry please contact me...I am of course willing to send Royal Mail First Class but I'm afraid there will be some small extra costs involved

I'm sorry if it seems expensive but my items can be heavy and therefore expensive to post.
I do not charge for the packaging or for the time incurred packing and taking to the post office.--just the cost of the stamp!
I can send up to 5kgs ( av 5 items ) in one parcel for a reasonable rate, so if you buy more than one item I can combine them and save you some money. Please let me know at the time of ordering if you want to do this.

As for International shipping....
I am really is just very expensive......the mail often get more than I do!
Believe me I don't make money on fact I make a loss.... I do not charge for the packaging or for the time incurred packing and taking to the post office.--just the cost of the stamp!
If you are not in a hurry ---there is a 42 day service (!) to far destinations, which is quite reasonably priced---usually about 2/3 the price quoted.....for the USA it is around the price quoted for Europe. Email me and I'll happily find out a price and change the listing for you.
I'm really sorry all the shipping is so extortionately expensive..... I hope it hasn't put you off buying from me.

I take the utmost care to wrap and secure pieces for their long journey to make sure they arrive safely.
