Avid knitters know the importance of keeping yarn tangle-free. Just ask a cat owner about the time their Whiskers confused an almost-finished sweater with a new toy. Or ask a parent about the time their baby decided to use their ball of yarn as a teething relief. Either way, that’s where this Yarn Bowl from Yarn Valet comes into play: It’ll keep projects knotless and out of harm’s way.
All you have to do is place your ball of yarn into the bowl and string the end of your yarn into the hole, so you can tug gently to feed out more material as you’re working. Since it’s made out of plastic, it’s unbreakable, and the rubber bottom keeps the bowl from slipping as you pull the thread. But even more important, it’ll let you move your project out of reach with ease.

Don’t believe the hype? Customers have left so many positive reviews, it’s now considered a best-seller. Here’s just a taste of what people have to say.
“My yarn flows smoothly and my cats can only watch,” says Janell. “I can turn it upside down to really deter my furry critics. It is just right including the price!”
“I picked this up for my wife who loves to knit and crochet,” says A. Molloy. “My wife typically spends time knitting/crocheting while sitting on our bed or sitting at her desk. In both scenarios this piece functions well.”
“It holds yarn balls or yarn cakes and keeps them safe in one place while I’m working with them,” says ATANA. “The yarn ball/cake just moves around in the bowl securely and stays clean. No more yarn balls flying across the floor and collecting dust and lint.”
Want one? This product will be back in stock on December 14 (just in time for Christmas!).
But if you can’t wait that long, or miss it before it sells out again, try one of these yarn bowl instead. This ceramic version lets you remove your yarn if you’re on the go.
Meanwhile, this new release features a dreamsicle glaze (how stylish?).
Or, maybe a yarn twirler is more your speed. This product was designed by Yarn Valet as well, so you can bet it’ll get the job done right.
