    The machine took less than 2 minutes to disassemble and the one that wraps in cakes is easy to use because it has a flat bottom and it makes it easy to use without the yarn ball rolling away.

    It makes yarn cakes and I use them a lot, it makes my yarn storage a lot more manageable, and it makes me want to get more yarn.

    Even with the fact that there are no real instructions, it is very easy to set up, even with the fact that I need to hold the yarn as it pulls from the tension bar.

    I wound all my yarn into cakes in about four hours, and I was able to get larger than the advertised balls out of this.

    The first ball was a bit loose, but after that, they were very tight and uniform, and I have weighed them and they have consistently weighed in at 6 ounces.

    Question & Answers


    Is it normal for it to make a horrible sqeaking noise after winding 2 skeins?


    It's usually an indication you're winding too tight, or at the wrong angle, and it's forcing the teeth, amongst other moving parts to grind again one another.


    The handle doesn't show up in the picture.


    I thought it was a mistake when I looked at this page and their website, and I saved the old one just in case for parts.


    Is it true that they will send replacement parts without issue?


    I have had broken wood needles they've replaced and they have also replaced a skein of yarn that was dyed at no cost to me.


    Can it be fixed after all the sudden the wheel doesn't turn with the crank? I only use mine for personal use and all the sudden the wheel doesn't turn with the crank.


    We can send you a replacement.


    Can this machine hold 400 yards of yarn?


    It depends on the weight of the yarn and the base width is not too large.
