You may wonder if you actually need a yarn bowl; the answer to that is a resounding yes!

First, functionality….

Yarn bowls keep your yarn clean!  If you’ve ever been knitting outside and have tried to keep your yarn from dropping on the ground, you can relate!  The answer to that is to place your yarn in a yarn bowl on the ground beside you where it will be nice and safe.  We’re pretty sure you might have a cat or a dog in your life and they are excellent at keeping your project safe from pet hair!

Yarn bowls keep your yarn from rolling all over the floor or table.  They sit right there in one spot, holding your yarn neat as a pin.  You never need to worry about where your skein is going to end up or how tangled it might be.  The ideal yarn bowl will allow your yarn to move freely in the bowl while at the same time keeping it in the bowl!

Yarn bowls have a slot that is used as a guide for your yarn.  All of our yarn bowls have smooth guides as rough ones would damage your precious fiber investment which would be a shame.

The yarn bowls at My Sister Knits have been carefully selected.  Our wooden ones are made in Fort Collins by friends of the shop. We have some enchanting ones made with Beetle Kill wood and turquoise inlay.  Or you might choose one for its matte wood artistry.  Still others have a sleek, shiny, more modern look and are made of Aspen and Cherry.
