The Yarn Pet Duo has a a low center of gravity and custom yarn guides. You can't go wrong with a tool designed by NKK.
Notice: Balls wound at the mill and not by a standard ball winder from a skein, are referred to as mill balls or mill wound yarn. These are long balls and not the conventional cakes of yarn that a ball winder would make. These types of balls will now work on the Yarn Pet or Yarn Pet Duo although we originally thought they would not.

The reason that they did not work originally is that their ends have yarn which wraps around the rod too closely which catches on the rod.
We have now discovered that if you raise the wood disc such that the top of the ball is slightly higher than the rod, then there seems to be no problem using the Pet series of products with this type of ball. You should also avoid using the yarn guide post when using these balls. That will allow the yarn to better navigate around the top of the ball and not get tangled.
Because our design allows the user to raise or lower the disc location, we are able to work around this problem.

Price: $60.00  Includes the Yarn Pet Duo, 2 tensioner posts, 2 8" rods, and 2 lite versions of our Yarn Cone Accessory Kit

Optional YP Cone Kit™ for the Yarn Pet™ - the standard Yarn Pet Duo comes with a wooden disc that will support a ball of yarn as well as some cones. However, our optional kit will allow you to support more sizes of cones as well as provide a means by which you can captivate the top of the cone. We also now include rubber stoppers in this kit which help to properly center the cones on the rod.
So, if you plan to mount cones of yarn on the Yarn Pet, then you may want to consider adding the YP Cone Kit™ to your order. 1 kit is for 1 rod so get 2 if you plan to mount 2 cones. Keep in mind that you will be limited in cone size when trying to mount 2 on the Duo. You will be better off using 2 standard Yarn Pets or a Yarn Pet Trio in that case.

The cone accessories which are included with the Yarn Pet (or which are available as options) consist of the following.

The YP Cone Kit, when added to the standard Yarn Pet, provides you with everything that is included in the Cone Accessory kit which is available for other NKK cone stands. The YP Cone kit allows you to mount most 7" cones of yarn. While the standard Yarn Pet can hold many cones of yarn, the YP Cone Kit is for serious cone users because it traps the cone securely to the rod.
