Hey everyone, it's Nicole! I'm the owner here at DarnGoodYarn.com and I want to talk to you in this video about yarn bowls! And we have so many different kinds of yarn bowls. I kind of went a little bit crazy ordering, but most of you know that we have our basic wooden yarn bowl. It's beautiful, it's nice and heavy. It's made from sheesham wood and sometimes- if you're not familiar with yarn bowls- we get a question on how to actually use it- like what's the purpose. And you know, if you have- if you're like me and you don't get to knit or crochet all that often and enjoy your fiber arts, like sometimes it's just nice to have your yarn out in like view like okay- I still see you over there yarn like I'm gonna get to you one of these days when I'm not chasing a toddler around like in my case! So you keep your yarn out. It's a really nice way to display it and when you're using it, you just simply take your yarn and you wrap it through this little swirl here and then you can stick it on the floor or on the table and then you just work your project. Some little tips and tricks that I like is if you're putting it on a floor and it's also wood as well-just make sure you put like an anti slip mat between that and it keeps it from just running all over the house. But this is a really great way to preserve any like special twists especially for handmade and handcrafted yarns. it keeps the twist from getting really unwieldy versus just like letting it roll around on the floor and collecting dust bunnies which in my case they're everywhere. And then this becomes a swiffer instead of a ball of yarn. It happens! Hey I'm just being real! In some of our, in some of our other yarn bowls. you'll notice that there's a little hole on the side of the bowl and that is for- it’s kind of nice. You know here's your yarn bowl and then when you're not working on your project you can stick the project in the bowl itself and then you can stick the needles through the hole going from either this way like that and rest them, which is nice because then everything stays together you can work and do it the other way as well. But since I have a project on here it's gonna stick out and be really awkward and not give the look that I'm going for. So with our ceramic yarn bowls too- the nice thing is they tend to be a little bit larger in most cases so you can get a larger ball of yarn in there- usually right around 250-300 grams. And then this is also- I'm in love with these- these are our limited edition painted yarn bowls- and these are you can see the size difference. They're substantially larger- they're like double the size of our standard wooden yarn bowl and they are just beautiful. So I hope that answers any of your questions and you can sort of see the size of what this all looks like and introduce you a little bit more to our world of Darn Good Yarn bowls.
