    If you use a small, fluorescent piece of duck tape, you can pull/roll it off and around the start end, just stick it on the edge of your work surface.

    While it is true that this ball winder won't hold a whole lot of yarn, it is a good price, easy to use, and even though it might not be as well made as ones that are double to triple the price, it is great for my use.

    The grease in the KP winder was so bad that it caused my yarn to get stuck in their spin gear, and it was an insult to injury.

    The silk lace weight winds well, even with a smooth crank and covered gears, and for the first time in a long time, I am not afraid to pull out a hank of beautiful yarn, knowing that the simple task of winding it will take an hour or more.

    It's relatively expensive, but it's not easy to tell if it's better than the other one, even after reading reviews.

    Question & Answers


    Will this one also get caught in my Lacis winder gears?


    It also will hold the entire hank of yarn. just have to turn it slowly.


    Do you think this will work with crochet cotton?


    It works with crochet Cotten and I have used two and three strands.


    Will this work for a 100g skein of yarn?


    It's ideal for this ball winder to hold 4oz skeins, but 5oz skeins will be easily held as long as you're careful towards the end.


    Is it possible to make the ball tighter?


    I hold on to the yarn as it feeds into the threader to get a tighter ball, and insert a small wound up index card with yarn specifications attached to a plastic clip and insert in the center as I pull the ball off.


    Which country is it made in?


    It says it's made in China and I'm very happy with it, even though I bought a no name winder from another vendor and it was terrible.
