Frustrating, but functional

First, the yarn they provide got all twisted up and I finally threw it away. The bowl itself works, but I guess I haven’t gotten the hang of it yet. Lovely bowl.

I gave it as a gift—my sister-in-law loved it. Beautiful craftsmanship
Beautiful handcrafted bowl!

I helped my nephew choose a unique gift for his Mother this year. She is a wonderful 75 year old who has no true needs, but is an avid knitter. Well, she absolutely loved this functional but yet beautiful piece of wood art! She was quite pleased that her son was so thoughtful. Love arrives in all different packages!
Bad Design

I ordered this for a friend’s birthday. The first one came in broken. Grommet was wonderful, as usual, and replaced it with a rush. The second one came in and looked like it had broken in the same place as the first but they glued it back together and didn’t even try to tint the glue. It is very weak where it starts to make the ‘curl’ that holds the yarn. An easy fix would be to drill a small hole horizontally, insert a small metal rod, fill the hole with tinted glue and sawdust. Problem solved.
Every knitter needs this

My husband found this on Grommet for me. Now I can’t imagine knitting without it.

Handcrafted Jumbo Wooden Yarn Bowl

This beautiful wooden yarn bowl is handmade in India by women in safe working conditions who are paid fair wages for their craftsmanship. The Indian rosewood bowl neatly corrals a ball of yarn and has a notch to help meter out untangled lengths.

Darn Good 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.
