Review: Lacis Yarn Ball Winder

Hi all, don’t you hate it when you use your skein and then it gets all loose and annoying? We know if we continue and not keep it “nicely” together then hello, knots!

I got mine 2 years ago online on Wal-Mart.. It’s called Lacis Wool Yarn Ball Winder ll Plastic for about $25 or get it on Amazon for a couple dollars more with free shipping if you have prime (still cheaper than Joann)!

PROS

> Cheap
> Works great
> Can wind up a fairly large skein
> Good size, not big, not small
> Keeps yarn organized and knot-free
> I like how you can wind up small skeins for on the go projects
> Easy to store

CONS

> You need to have a thin table to clamp the winder on (maybe a couple inches thick?)
> The winder knob can get loose causing the clamp to become loose if you go too fast, so, you’ll need to tighten it back up
> One color choice which is red and cream
> Wished there was more instructions when I got the winder
> It can get loud if you go fast and depending where you clamped it onto

This is how a small skein of yarn would look like

You can get yarn winders at any craft store, though, most of the time you have to purchase it online. Wal-Mart was the cheapest price and free shipping to a Wal-Mart location. I think Joann has the same brand for about $47, that’s almost 50% more, BUTTTT if there happens to be a 40-50% off coupon, I’d totally go for it!! PS. I’ve had this yarn winder for about 2 years and it’s still going great. No issues for me and still in perfect condition. I love it and it was worth the money!

HAVE YOU GUYS USED A YARN WINDER BEFORE? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT? IT’S DEFINITELY A HOLY GRAIL ITEM IF YOU’RE INTO YARN AS I AM 🙂

  1. This past Christmas my boyfriend’s parents gifted me a yarn winder. It isn’t that big and is just one of the smaller ones, but oh my goodness it is so useful!

      Yup! It can make such a difference in your yarn organization as well and so much easier to store leftover yarn laying around 🙂
