A nostepinne is a Scandinavian knitting tool used to wind your own center pull yarn ball the old fashioned, low-tech way.
Unlike one of those hand-cranked, mechanical ballwinders, a nostepinne is practically unbreakable, completely portable, does not require clamping to a table, needs no batteries and will not frizz merino yarns.
Lathe turned from natural wood , each one is different and unique - no duplicators or templates are used. Sanded at 5 levels to 600 grit, for a shiny, satin smooth finish, including the grooves - no snags. All natural exotic wood - no stain, dye or chemicals used.
This one is a medium sized one, made of Spalted Tamarind wood. Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought after by woodworkers.
It is 10 1/2 inches long, with 5 inches of usable sloped shaft for winding, between top and bottom grooves, and is 1 1/8 inch in diameter at the widest point.
