Our Yarn Pet ™ line of cone and ball holders has really opened another door for NKK. Using the technology that we developed for the Pet series we have been able to extend this method for holding yarn and tensioning it across many products. Given our extensive experience in making ball winders and meters, we were thrilled to be able to utilize the Pet technology in so many different ways.
The unit comes complete with a 4" x 6" Maple Hardwood base, an adjustable guide, a stainless steel rod (3 different lengths are available), 2 shaft collars, an Allen Wrench, and a wooden disk.
Everything comes apart in less than 1 minute.
We recommend that once you determine the height that you want the ball to rest on the wooden disk at, then you tighten the 2 small shaft collars with the Allen Wrench and then the rod and disk will be assembled together and the disk will be locked in place. That enables you to place the disk and shaft assembly into your knitting bag along with the platform and guide.
This small tool can be used anywhere (on the floor, on a coffee table, in the car (while a passenger). The yarn can go in any direction after going thru the guide.
