  • Excellent Product

    I could not do what I do without this counter! It is very accurate and super time saving. Highly recommended.

  • Nifty tool

    This is the same old Shakespeare fishing line counter, mounted on a little piece of wood. I found a clamp at the xxxxxxxx, and I clamped this meter between my swift and my winder. Perfect! The first time I used it, I was terribly disapointed, as I was getting like 3 times the estimated length. Duh! It measures in feet, not meters. So all is well. It's difficult to attach properly to a table, as it's not flat underneath. Two hours after I ordered this, my new KnitPicks catalog came out with their new $xx yarn meter! Oh well, this is probably of better quality.

    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good description, but the order took about 2 weeks to get here.

  • Nice but not quite

    The counter came on time and brand new, no problems there. I purchased this counter to count my handspun twine, only to discover that it is too thin for this mechanism to count as it's being fed through. After receiving the item and discovering its short comings, I researched it more and discovered that it's only recommended for thicker yarns, something that I would have preferred to have known upfront. There is no mention of this in the description, and I assumed that if it were "adapted from the finishing industry" that it would have no problems with thinner gauge yarns. Still a good product and I'm sure I'll find a use for it at some point, but I cannot use it for this particular project.

    This is the perfect little tool for every knitter, crocheter, spinner....anyone who needs to know yarn yardage! It seems to be pretty accurate and it works wonderfully. I am very pleased with the purchase.

  • Cute, but no cigar

    If you only want a rough idea of how much yarn you have then I suppose this counter will serve. But, honestly, it's more of a toy than a precise instrument. I was trying to divide a skein in half but, every time I ran yarn through the counter, I got significantly different results. I had far better luck with an electronic kitchen scale from W@L-M^RT that was accurate to a gram. I weighed the skein and then left it on the scale while I used a ball winder to wind yarn off the skein until the scale showed 1/2 its original weight. That came out close enough for me. The yarn counter would never have gotten that close. Not recommended.

  • Disappointing

    I really wanted this to be viable. After a dozen attempts with a variety of pre-measured yarns and fibers, it was obvious that it was at least 20% off on anything and everything we tried. If you need an accurate measurement of your fiber, this is NOT the guy.

  • Awesome Device

    I bought this yarn counter to measure projects so I can package some crochet kits. It's been a lifesaver. I love it and absolutely recommend it!
