This yarn butler is made entirely by hand by Octopussy Shipwright shop, a Quebec craftsman, exclusively for Biscotte yarns.

This handy accessory will make it easier for you to knit with wool balls or cones. Place them on the wood yarn spindle and it will easily follow your movements, thanks to the ball bearings mechanism.

Made of solid birch, the top part is approximately ¾ "(2cm) thick by 5" (12.5cm) in diameter. The bottom part is approximately 1 "(2.5cm) thick x 6" (15cm) in diameter. The dowel is hardwood, 7 "(17.5cm) long x ¾" (2cm) in diameter. Both parts are assembled on a bearing.

You can carry the yarn butler anywhere you want to knit in your cute Tricoluchon bag, as it is easy to disassemble.

  • The assembled dimensions are: height- 22.5cm (8 ¾ "), width- 15.5cm (6 ").
  • Care: Clean with a soft cloth. Do not immerse in water.
  • Finish: 2 coats of teak oil, 1 layer of oil based waxes.

Yarn Butler

I have been looking for a yarn butler/yarn caddy for a couple years. When I saw this on the website, I purchased it immediately. The day it arrived, I assembled it (very easy assembly) and placed a cake of yarn on it. It has been in use since then! The caddy is well made and the craftsmanship is beautiful.

The magic wooden wonder

I love my new wooden spindle which I named it the wooden wonder. It spins effortlessly and I live the small noise of the berrings as I pull the yarn

Thank you for your feedback Victoria Hand :)! Always a pleasure to read you.
