Super yarn holder

It’s a gift for a very dear friend but I had to see it and find it very nice as well as useful. I’m sure she will love it. That makes even more gorgeous and wanted. I may order another if I take up crocheting again.More > < Less

This bowl would be beautiful except for the fact that it has a "knot" about 3 inches in diameter that is almost white. It is a polished knot, yes, but it stands out like a sore thumb compared to the rest of the wood's coloring. I am surprised that the artisan did not just throw this away when they saw it. It ruins the whole look of the bowl. Also, the free yarn that came with it has a very pungent, bad smell to it. Disappointed to say the least.More > < Less

The yarn in the bowl is about 1/4 of what is shown. I was very disappointed.

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.
