We have one of these hand-crafted wooden ball winders in-store and absolutely love it! It is by far the best one we have used. Built in anti-friction mechanism insures free rotation and a smoothly wound ball of yarn. Anti-skid rubber pads prevent the winder from sliding or scratching the table surface. The ball winder is available in two variations in wood, with separate replacement bands. Made with a combination of colourful laminated beech wood.
