The Yarnit is a nearly indestructible globe that keeps your yarn safe and protected from grime, pets, and accidents. Now your yarn will always stay by your side - no more chasing it across the floor or down the isle of a plane or peeling it off your car’s dirty floor mat. No more tangled messes - the centrifugal force design means your yarn easily flows from the globe helping you maintain an even tension.

PLUS, the Yarnit's special rubber base holds securely to all surfaces AND provides a storage well to keep those “never can find ‘em when you need ‘em” items like stitch markers, scissors and darning needles. To top it off, the top of our globe has needle docking slots to keep your needle tips protected and stitches safe on your line when you are taking a break!

Knitting Is Officially In Style!

 

  • Super-durable Lexan shell with needle docking slots 
  • Easy-open design 
  • Rubber base for easy resting on any surface 
  • Secret Compartment for scissors, stitch markers, and more 
  • Shoulder strap for easy travel!
  • Compact 5" design

 

 

Knitting and crocheting can help you achieve a state of focus and calm that neuroscientists call "flow". These activities train your brain to release feel-good chemicals with benefits for depression and anxiety so great that some call knitting “the new yoga”!

That’s where Yarnit comes in! Don’t ruin your flow by worrying about your yarn getting tangled up or attacked by your cat. Don’t let your calm turn into frantically looking for stitch markers. Don't waste your precious "me time" chasing runaway balls!

Yarnit takes the stress out of knitting and crocheting so you can focus on your project, and yourself!

There’s No Stopping You Now.

 

Because YOU demanded it, we've designed our BIGGEST Yarnit yet! It's called...

The Big Sully

Our biggest model yet, perfect for crochet!
Our biggest model yet, perfect for crochet!
  • 7” globe, large enough to accommodate a full skein of most yarns without having to ball or cake them first! (Great for those who like to work from the center pull)
  • Multiple yarn holes to for chunky or fine yarns
  • Interior sectional insert so you can use multiple 50 gram balls, perfect for doing color work
  • Needle docking slots for all needle gauges, hook sizes 2 to 17!
  • Original Yarnit base with accessory compartment
  • 6" ruler included for those quick measurements!

We've turned to Kickstarter because without your help, we won't be able to make the Big Sully! We're proud to be American made and always will be - but our manufacturer's set-up costs to tool the factory are nearly $100,000! We need your help to get over this one-time hump so we can produce Big Sully's for years to come!

Any Tips Or Suggestions?

We think we have though of everything but if you think we are missing something important please email me a kate@theyarnit.com and let me know your thoughts. After all, without you there is no Yarnit - period!

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our Yarnits are already made and in stock, ready to be shipped! As for the Big Sully, with any manufacturing process there's the possibility of production delays. That said, the Big Sully is a larger version of a product we're already very familiar with and we've already proofed our design with a prototype.

We've been awarded a US utility patent and granted our trade mark in the US and Canada with the EU pending, and we'll be using our outstanding established relationship with a plastics manufacturer in Binghamton NY who has produced our original Yarnit and understands and appreciates our demand to produce a quality product.

Whatever delays do arise will be communicated transparently to all of our backers!
