So you play with yarn. Did you ever pay attention to the tools you use? I know everyone has their favorite needles and hooks. But I'm talking about all the other tools. It really does make a difference in your craft if you have the right tool for the job.
DYNT carries some tools of the trade - left handed scissors, USA Made embroidery hoops, tatting shuttles, and of course knitting needles and crochet hooks. DYNT carries Brittany and Denise needles and hooks. Both are US made. Brittany are made from sustainable birch. Denise needles and hooks are interchangeable plastic sets and singles. Great for travel and the person who needs every size...I've found them very handy. If my gauge is off, it's easy to switch up or down a size or two because I already have that size.
There are a few tools that may need some explanation. Like the top, left photo. Those are nostepinnes. What does that mean? What do they do? It's so simple, I was surprised to learn about them. It is a tool used to wind yarn into a center pull ball. Simply put, you hold the nostepinne in one hand with a tail of yarn at the handle and start winding...there are more elaborate directions to be found on line, but that's the basics. If you've never mastered the handheld center pull method - for $9.99, this silly simple tool is an amazing little find. The ones at DYNT are locally made by a craftsman who harvests the wood himself too.
DYNT also carries a handful of drop spindles. Schacht Spindles are pictured above right. But we also have a few locally made options that are just as beautiful and each of them is unique. The photo to the left is a Niddy Noddy. If you don't know what a Niddy Noddy is, it is also a yarn winding tool, most often used by spinners. What's great about this one? It travels! It can be un-assembled and reconfigured to the yardage you need. The $35 also includes the travel bag. These too are USA Made!
