No bigger than a credit card, this easy-to-carry gadget features four handy functions for fibre spinners:
• TWIST ANGLE GAUGE:
Determine the angle of twist in your yarn by lining it up with the vertical lines, then slide it across the gauge to find the degree-line that most closely matches the angle of your twist.
Alternatively, centre your yarn over the crosshairs at the bottom of the gauge, then tilt the yarn until the twist lines up with the centre vertical line. Your yarn will then be lying on the angle that indicates your degree of twist.
• 2 x RECESSED RULES (in & cm):
Calculate the number of twists per inch or centimetre, or use the recesses to wrap your yarn and determine its WPI rating.
• GROOVED CONTROL CARD:
Quickly check your yarn's WPI as you work. Just lay your yarn in each groove, and when you find a groove that gives your yarn a snug fit, the corresponding number indicates its WPI rating (from 60wpi to 4wpi).
• FIBRE CATCH NOTCHES:
We've incorporated the functionality of our popular Fibre Catch tool, allowing you to keep your yarn from unravelling while you take a break from spinning. Simply use the clasp provided to hook the tool to your spinning wheel, then use the notches just like our Fibre Catch.
HANDY AND COMPACT: This tool is no bigger than a credit card and has facility for an additional split ring to be attached next to the lobster clasp, so that you can hang the Spin Buddy on your keyring or craft bag.
