Monk Creek wooden yarn bowls are each uniquely designed and turned to feature the beauty of the wood’s natural edge while securely holding your ball of yarn as you knit. Our yarn bowls range from medium to larger sizes, depending on what your yarn ball sizes are, and custom sizes can be made to order depending on your needs.

What Goes into Making a Wooden Yarn Bowl?

No two wooden yarn bowls by Monk Creek are alike as each bowl’s silhouette develops naturally from the shape of the raw piece of wood. When creating a yarn bowl, we take a two-step approach designed to gently bring out the final shape.

  1. The first step is to take the raw cross section from a trunk or branch and core out the green wood from within. Following this, we seal the piece and set it aside for up to a year to “cure.”
  2. The second step is to complete the piece by turning the raw form into the final shape, cutting out the needed hole and feeding groove for the yarn, and applying the finish, in most cases to a glossy sheen (though it is possible request a matte finish).

Each wooden yarn bowl is turned with a heavy, wide bottom for maximum stability, and finished with a durable finish such as General Finishes Arm-R-Seal.
