The Niddy-Noddy is a tool for winding skeins of yarn. Great for finishing hand spun yarn and for preparing to dye yarn. Available for custom order in most woods email ch@cynthiahaney.com for info.

As for using a Niddy-Noddy if the motions get confusing there are both various web tutorials and directions in most spinning books. I have pictures of them in use on the fiber page showing some of my hand spindle spun yarn. Once you have all of your yarn wrapped on the niddy-noddy, just count the wraps. If you are using the full size 2 yd. niddy-noddy multiply by two for your yardage. If you are using the 18" sample size niddy-noddy divide by 2 for your yardage.

Wraps 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. All have notches to help keep the yarn tail in place while you wrap, also some are available without the hanger. Regularly available in any wood I use for turning spindle shafts
