Made here in our own Willow Cottage NZ workshop.
“Nostepinne” or “nostepinde” is a Scandinavian word that means “nest-stick.”; the original Ball Winder.
It is a tool used to wind a center-pull yarn ball. A nostepinne is portable, easy to use, and creates a center-pull ball that can be used without changing the twist in the yarn.
Check out this video for instructions on how to use a nostepinne.
These are handmade items, from various timbers - each nostepinne is unique. Your nostepinne will be sent randomly from the stock we have available unless you specify a particular timber.
Very popular item in Waldorf education, Montessori education or those keen on homestead skills, old-fashioned lifeskills, etc.
