Yarn to Yards Balance
A lot of information in a small package! You'll wonder how you got along without this indispensable tool for dealing with unidentified, mystery yarn. To find the yards per pound loop a strand of yarn over the balancing arm. Trim the yarn until the arm balances. Remove the yarn, measure it in inches and multiple the length by 100. That number will be an estimate of the number of yards per pound. If you know how many yards are in a pound, and the weight of your leftovers, simple math will tell you how many yards of yarn you have. The balance stands 6.25 in tall, and works with any yarn. Assembled in US.
