Okay, this is the truth. I have purchased 3 for my daughter in upstate New York, 2 for my sister in Florida and 2 for my daughter that lives with me. Oh yes, I have purchased 3 for myself. They are so beautiful and the craftsmanship is wonderful. The yarn is simply awesome, I love the feel and colors.More > < Less




Loved it


I gave it as a gift and it was a hit!


My friend has been coaching me to crochet so I bought her this as a gift and she loved it. I haven't seen it in person but she assures me that it's lovely.More > < Less


Yarn bowl looks nice.


Bought this as a gift for a friend that crochets & knits a lot. I received it in the mail and it's just the right size and hopefully will dispense her yarns easily while keeping the ball of yarn in the bowl. Love the color of the wood and appearance of the bowl. Don't know about the actual functionality though.More > < Less


Best purchase I have made in a long time


I loved this bowl in teak and plan to purchase one in rosewood.

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.
