Babe’s niddy-noddies are made of 3/4″ furniture PVC with O-rings at the ends to help hold on the yarn, and a Babe Aid to hold the beginning end of the yarn to the center shaft.
Why plastic? It’s lightweight, impervious to moisture, and does not stain, Making it great for regular winding, holding skeins neat while painting on dyes, and for drying yarn under tension.
