This kit includes 1 hard maple cross beam, allowing users to make 1 yard skeins. A hardware assembly utilizing threaded inserts and a thumb screw hold the smooth 3/4" thick hard maple cross beam onto the sturdy yellow birch end pieces. Other similarly priced niddy noddys use friction between wood pieces to hold the item together, leading to tight or loose fits as the seasons change or the item is used. This niddy noddy does not have that problem. It is always securely fastened and ready to go!
The niddy noddy is a great tool for making skeins of yarn. Wound skeins slide easily from the smooth sloped end pieces.
