The Butterfly Kate is a multi-purpose knitting and spinning tool with a carbon fiber shaft and an expanding base crafted of solid American black cherry. Its lightweight design allows you to take the product anywhere, and use it for a variety of different tasks. Used with our Yarn Caddy it's a tool for easily feeding yourself yarn as you knit or crochet. Used with a bobbin it's a Lazy Kate that can be nearly vertical or inclined (60° from horizontal) for a slight "natural tensioning" effect.
The Akerworks Butterfly Kate features a TensiTamer on the shaft, a special device that provides individually-tunable braking tension to the bobbin. The TensiTamer can also be used as a yarn guide or spindle holder if desired.
Overall Dimensions (Collapsed): 10” x 1-5/8” x 7/8”
