Details
The Yarn Pet is a small tool that holds balls of yarn and allows you to remove the yarn in an orderly manner without re-twisting the yarn. But most importantly, the knitter never has to "tug" on the ball of yarn to free up the yarn-It just magically comes off the ball as you knit. The yarn ball rests on a wooden disk that freely rotates around the stainless steel rod. As the knitter knits, that simple pulling action that the needles generate is enough energy to cause the ball to turn and dispense the yarn to the knitter. The yarn goes through an adjustable guide, as well, so the knitter can adjust the tension of the yarn as it is delivered to their needles.

The Yarn Pet works best with cakes wound on a ballwinder. Drop the cake onto the rod, thread the tail through the yarn guide, and start knitting! Whether the Yarn Pet is on the floor or the table next to you, the yarn will always come off the side of the cake and the cake will turn on the rod, keeping your yarn orderly and preventing added twist, which happens when the yarn comes off the TOP of a cake, rather than the side.

Hardwood and steel, 4" x 6" with 6.75" high rod for yarn ball, with integrated adjustable tensioner and yarn guide. Yarn pet comes packaged in a padded envelope and requires some basic assembly.

Great idea !
What a clever device! Definitely on my list of must haves.
Hope it will also work with my crochet thread balls; they are wound on fat cylinders, but most have paper end caps, so I'm guessing this will save all that wasted untwisting mess.
