Sawyer Creek Yarn bowls are handcrafted from native Ozark wood species and designed to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Bowls are sanded smooth and finished with multiple coats of shellac to provide a smooth, snag-free surface. Each bowl has an opening on side through which to pull yarn. This opening is wide at the top with a small round hole at the end of the slot – design elements that are a result of suggestions from experienced knitters.
Each bowl has a unique shape and grain pattern. Typical wood species are Oak, Cedar, Walnut, Mulberry, Maple and Cherry. Current stock depends on the availability of wood at the time. We do not cut trees down to make these bowls. Our sources are usually cuttings from agricultural land clearing or powerline maintenance – essentially botanical road-kill.
