Knitting bowl

I bought this as a gift. It was so loved I needed to buy a second one for the other knitter in the family. They both absolutely love how it holds the ball of yarn.More > < Less

I have wanted one of these for a long time. It is a beautiful work of art and it works great for my knitting project.


It’s Wonderful!

I have been crocheting recently and found the bowl keeps the yarn contained and not going after the ball on the floor. The wood is made of teak and is so elegant. I’m happy!!!More > < Less

This bowl is beautiful, and the pretty yarn and pattern were such a nice addition. This would be a beautiful gift for a knitter. I ordered mine for me, and I’m so glad I did.More > < Less

About Darn Good Yarn

Sari Yarn

The wooden yarn bowls and silk sari yarn from Darn Good Yarn are made in India by women who are paid fair wages and provided safe working conditions—because Founder Nicole Snow wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s committed to supporting women through economic empowerment as well as Fair Trade practices.

These goods that do good stand-out for being beautifully made, too. The silk sari yarn saves vintage saris destined for the dump by upcycling them into colorful yarn. Each sari is torn by hand and sewn into strips that can be knitted, crocheted, woven—or used any way you like. And Indian rosewood and teak are used to craft notched bowls that keep yarn neatly corralled.

Nicole was looking for a way to combine two loves—creativity and helping people—when she retired from the U.S. Air Force. With Darn Good Yarn, she ensures that her workforce of women isn’t just making ends meet—they’re helping their families flourish.
