All nostepinnes are handcrafted in the USA. There are natural variations in wood and design.
Using a Nostepinne:
Make a slip not on to one of the indents on the nostepinne. Place the yard down the nostepinne a few inches and secure that yard by winding gently around the nostepinne 5 or 6 times. Then when it is secure, wind the yarn gently diagonally and rotate the nostepinne at the same time so the yard winds evenly around the nostepinne. When you come to the end, wind the yard around the ball and place the end of the yarn through those last few winds to secure it. Pull the skein off and you can use the end with the slipknot as the center pull.
