Wrap Per Inch Tools

The WPI tool is used for measuring yarn thickness. You do this by winding, like a roll of paper, the yarn around one of the sections. Each strand touching the next until there is no more room. Then you count the wraps and if you used the 1" you have your measurement for wraps per inch. The tool also has a 2" and 1/2" section which helps when measuring thick and thin yarn respectively. By winding the yarn on to measure you get a more accurate result as you are not adding or subtracting twist in the process. Great to help identify the correct yarn for a project or to gauge the result of your hand spinning. A brass eye on the end of the tool allows you to add a loop of yarn for hanging.
