Yarn Ball Winders - Turn Skeins into Balls

The Best Yarn Ball Winders for Knitters & Crocheters

If you are looking for high-quality yarn winders from well-known brands, you have landed on the right page. We have a range of yarn ball winders to suit every need and budget. From handheld Nostepinne to a heavy-duty ball winder which can be motorised, we'll have something for you!

What are the Benefits of Using a Yarn Winder?

Using a yarn winder comes with many benefits, including creating a flat-bottomed ball that prevents the yarn from rolling as you pull, untangling yarn in all areas, creating compact yarn balls that are easier to store and organize, and enabling access to both ends of the yarn. 

A yarn winder is also a worthwhile buy for those who frequently wind yarn at home as they are faster and more convenient compared to hand-winding, which causes strain on the hands and wrists. 

If you are a keen knitter or into crochet, a yarn winder is a must to make your life easier. Yarn winders help to save you time so you can focus on creating your project instead of having to deal with untangling yarn. Owning a yarn winder can also help organize a large yarn stash and make preparing yarns simple. 

Additionally, yarn winders are also a great way of inspecting your yarn for knots or weak points so you can fix them before you start working on your project. Which helps make working with yarn easier and your projects more efficient. By using a ball winder you can turn your skeins into balls and easily organise and store your yarn.

What kind of yarn winder is right for me?

These are the most important considerations when buying a yarn winder.

  1. Determine what type of yarn ball winder you need. Do you need a manual ball winder or an electric one, such as the Ashford E-Ball Winder? Are you looking for a small or large-capacity yarn winder?
  2. Compare the pros and cons of the various yarn winders available. Some winders may be more inexpensive and much easier to use for beginners, while others may be more durable and provide better results.
  3. Check the quality and construction of the yarn ball winder. Make sure that the winder you are buying is made of high-quality materials and construction as these are essential for a durable, long-lasting product. 
  4. Know your budget. Yarn winders from different brands, like Ashford or KnitPro, are sold in a range of prices and can have different features. How much are you willing to spend on one? Are you willing to invest in a slightly more expensive one with better features compared to the more basic options?

Choosing Your Ball Winder

Our range of ball winders are suitable for winding both small and large amounts of yarn. We have electric, wooden and large yarn ball winders to suit different needs and projects.

Need to wind balls on the go? Our handheld ball winder is the perfect choice. Or want to make your life extra easy? Our electric ball winder is easy to use and will quickly and effortlessly roll your yarn into balls.

But if you prefer to be in control and like the idea of being able to clamp your yarn winder to any surface then one of our manual winders would be best. We have the easy-to-use KnitPro Ergonomic Ball Winder, the Knitpro Handcrafted Timber Ball Winder and the Ashford Ball Winder. All of which have their own unique features. Check out their product pages for more details.
