ntuitive design meets a modern aesthetic with our Wraps Per Inch Tool! We chose to make it with an eco-friendly Fibrex MDF board made with 100% recycled/recovered, FSC certified wood content—the same material you’ll find matches the rest of their collection. Next, we added a tiny notch on the left side bottom so that you can easily catch and wrap yarn. A carefully drilled hole at the top can be used to hang it for storage, attach it to a project tote project tote. And to top it all off, we’ve snuck in an original Twig & Horn sheep graphic—just to show people how serious you are about yarn!
Using a classic method of establishing yarn weight, you can easily identify ‘mystery yarns’ in your stash without the stress of hunting down original labels.
- Size: 1.75” x 5”
- Made in the USA
Here are two (easy) ways to use the Wraps Per Inch Tool:
From the Top: Visually identify yarn weight by laying it across the horizontal grooves and matching the width of the groove to the width of a single strand of yarn.
To the Bottom: Use the lower portion as a traditional wraps per inch tool. Insert the end of the yarn into the left-hand notch to help keep it in place, then wrap carefully horizontally, making sure each wrap is placed next to the previous one, and the yarn is not pulled too tight. The number of wraps that fit within the marked 1” area translates to the numbers on the upper part of the tool (WPI- wraps per inch)
Newly refined and better than ever, Twig & Horn square gauge rulers are crafted using high-quality MDF board made with 100% recycled/recovered, FSC certified wood content. This eco-friendly option stands the test of time and holds up to plenty of use without warping or cupping.
Each ruler is long enough to measure a 4″ or 10 cm swatch, and built with a needle gauge in US and metric sizes from 0 – 15 US [2 – 10 mm].
For reasons related to COVID and international manufacturing, shipping and distribution delays, we ended up with a couple of surplus Lopi Blankets in stock. We only have one of each of the two styles shown (above & below), and we don’t expect to be taking the next round of pre-orders until August.
Lopi ready-made blankets are gorgeous, heirloom pieces for your home or cottage. They’re perfect in the living room, or at the end of the bed, and also make beautiful gifts. Made of Icelandic wool, they are extremely durable, lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is additionally combed after weaving to make it softer (they tend to feel a bit like a fluffier version of the Hudson Bay Blanket). The blankets come in various patterns and all are reversible. We also have a sample in store for you to see and feel.
