Beautiful yarn bowl

by

This yarn bowl is beautiful and feels so smooth. I purchased this as a holiday gift for a good friend who knits, and I know she will appreciate its beauty, functionality and fine workmanship. The bowl is beautiful enough that, even when she's not knitting, she can leave it on the table as a decorative accessory.More > < Less

I am very pleased with this product. It is every bit as elegant as you described. I actually ordered one each of the two sizes and gave them both as gifts which were well received.More > < Less

A much appreciated gift

by

I purchased this item for my sister's birthday; she does a lot of crochet and often complains of the havoc that her dog wrecks on her yarn. When she received her package, I immediately got a very excited phone call from her, telling me how much she loved it, how attractive it was and how much she looked forward to using it. I think it would be a fabulous gift for the crafter in your life, whether that person is yourself or another.More > < Less

DARN GOOD YARN

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

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.
