The nostepinne is a Scandinavian tool used to wind a ball of yarn, often from a reeled hank or a spinning bobbin. It functions as the center of the ball while you wind the yarn around it. Once you have wound the ball, you slide it off the nostepinne. Then you can pull the yarn from the center, the outside, or both.
This Kromski nostepinne is made in Poland of hardwood and finished with either a clear finish, mahogany stain, or walnut stain.
