Bob's commentary - as we got into winding cones and using cones, we were dismayed that yarn on cones did not bahave properly. It was like an adolescent that needed some direction. We knew that if you pulled yarn off the top of a cone that it would re-twist. Given that Nancy was spinner we knew that a lot of thought went into the spinning of yarn and it just wasn't right for the cone to "carelessly" add or subtract twist to the yarn as it dispensed yarn to the user. So we set out to solve the problem. The result was our Yarn Pet line of ball and cone holders.
By removing yarn from the cone horizontally we eliminate the retwisting of yarn. We allow the cone to spin as we remove the yarn. This adds just the right amount of tension to the yarn and we also use an adjustable tensioner to further tension the yarn if necesaey. Otherwise, our tensioner acts as a yarn guide.
The Trio can be used on the floor or on the same level as the skein-winder.
Whichever way you use it you will love it. It is the first truly capable cone holder that actually enhances the way the cones dispense yarn.
We offer 4" and 6" guides depending on what size cones you use. You want to have the guide at the middle of the cone approximately.
