I wasn’t disappointed when my yarn bowl arrived! It is a perfect size and looks exactly like the picture. I began using it right away. Yarn flows smoothly over its smooth surface. I recommend it to any crafter that uses yarn!More > < Less

I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my older sister who can't sit down without something to keep her hands busy. She either knits or crochets. br /> I think she'll be very happy with this. I opened the box and it was beautiful and unique.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Major thumbs up!

I bought this for a Christmas gift for a friend. Was expecting a bit larger but it will likely be just fine. The accompanying yarn is really pretty as well. Can’t wait to see what it becomes.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.
