Knitting Yarn Bobbins

$3.49 - $4.99

Complicated intarsia can be a little easier when you use a yarn bobbin. Flip up the top of your yarn bobbin, and wind your yarn around the center of the spool. Then shut your bobbin, and the yarn in your bobbin is secured. These yarn bobbins can hang off the back of your intarsia project without unwinding. Choose from a small, medium, or large size.

Small - 2" diameter, set of 6

Medium - 2 3/8" diameter, set of 6

SKU: 80624
Large - 3 1/2" diameter, set of 4

I use these for storing short strands of yarn. When doing a Fair Isle piece I have lots of short strands. I leave a tail hanging out for each short strand on a bobbin. Then I know a bobbin with one strand hanging out will have a longer piece of yarn than one with three strands hanging out.

These are fantastic. After trying card, pegs and various other methods, these are making graphgan work a pleasure. When finishing with one colour,a short pull locks the yarn on the bobbin. No more long ends to untangle. Really pleased with these. Thank you.

It is great for the intarsia method, however, opposite to what the video described and the description... you cannot just hang it over and the yarn will be secured. The yarn was still rolling out of the bobbin and it became very inconvenient, especially will traveling around with my project. I do not recommend these and I've initiated a return on the mine... the large bobbins.

I am absolutely in love with these bobbins! So much so I have put more on my wish list!
