Wood Turning & Fine Craft Tools by Cynthia D. Haney, Spindle Maker
Nostepinne is a custom stick for winding a center feed ball of yarn by hand. Tie the yarn on the notch to secure the starting end tail. Wind gently so the center stays open after the nostepinne is removed. This prevents tangles and messy yarn barf. Wind in a cake, ball, or egg shape. See the Nostepinne Tutorial for directions.
