are used to wind center-pull balls which allow access to both ends of the ball of yarn at the same time. Spinners use center- pull balls when plying two single ply yarns together. Knitters use a nostepinne to wind balls of yarn - you can knit from both ends of the ball at the same time.

For something "Extra Special" in a Nostepinne, Edward has created the 2-tone Nostepinne, using two different contrasting woods for the handle and shaft.

Enjoy using our "Mini Nostepinne".  It is similar in length to the "Mini Spindle" so both fit easily in a small bag along with your favorite fibre.  They are easy to take along to spin anywhere and are available in a variety of woods.
