She cried tears of joy!

by

I purchased this bowl as a Christmas gift for a dear friend of mine who is an avid knitter. When she opened the gift, she actually cried tears of joy because she had seen the bowl and had been wanting it for quite a while. It’s an absolutely beautiful work of art and she loves using it AND looking at it. Great, great gift!!More > < Less

Gift for Christmas

by

I just happened upon this while looking for something unique for my mother ~n~ law. She commented on how she’s never seen anything like this and what a lovely gift. No more chasing yarn across the floor. So, yes, it was a nice feeling and thank you for creating this wonderful “Grommet”.....More > < Less

Lovely with or without yarn!

Bought as a gift for a friend who crochets all the time. Bowl is larger than I envisioned and very pretty wood. Would recommend highly.

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

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.
