This precision wool spool is both beautiful to look at and sure to put an end to any runaway yarn balls. When knitting or crocheting, the wool winds off your ball easily thanks to the integrated bearings. The wool spool is handcrafted in a small workshop in southern Germany and is made of beech wood from sustainable forestry. Thanks to an elaborate finish and coating, the spool's smooth surface keeps yarn from sticking or splitting. The varnish complies with EU guidelines for children’s toys. Five rubber feed secure an even and firm stand.
