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.
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.

a Yarn Pet Duo
OptionalYP 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.

great gift. Knitters will be thoroughly
enjoying this great gift within minutes of opening the

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.
