Knitting Notions is a family owned and operated business. We opened in 2005 with our first product, our handmade Yarn Swifts, and have added to our product line as our business grew. We now produce a large line of handmade wood and leather products as well as hand dyed merino wool yarns. 99% of the products that we sell are made by us or another American small business.
Yarn Handling Tools
Our table top yarn swifts have been made by hand in our own shop in Nashville, Tennesee since 2005. Our table-top style yarn swifts are popular because they are so simple to use and store. Their uncomplicated design and beauty also makes them easy to leave out for easy access. Every knitter, crocheter and spinner will appreciate having this tool for yarn handling close at hand.
We have a couple of options for winding your skeins of yarn into balls to knit or crochet from. The Lacis yarn ball winder that we sell is the more familiar and faster choice, but it does need to be clamped to a table or counter to use. Our hand crafted wooden nostpinnes are a low tech option that has the advantage of being portable and there is no need to attach it to anything. It's great for using to wind by hand either with or without a swift, whereas a mechanical yarn ball winder performs better in conjunction with a swift. They both have a unique place in a yarn crafter's tool repetoire.
