This review is from: ArtBin Yarn Drum 12-inches round by 12-3/4-inches high, Raspberry (Misc.) I am in love with this bag. The slots at the top are very clever. You can pull up to four strands of fiber through its own circular opening at a time. But what I really love are the slots that allow you to slide your WIP inside the bag. No more having to store a project outside of the yarn keeper! The color is bright & cheerful. There are a couple things to note:1. The dimensions are accurate as described. It’s small if you are making an afghan & large for a sock project. The handle & strap are sturdy & comfortable. I find it very convenient for transporting my projects to different locations.2. There are no side supports. This bag will collapse if you don’t have something tall inside. I keep a full skein that I haven’t started using yet. Works very well for me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 82 of 84 people found the following review helpful A “must have” for any crocheter or knitter!, January 19, 2012 By N. Nick “redgarnet54” (Tampa Bay area, FL USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: ArtBin Yarn Drum 12-inches round by 12-3/4-inches high, Raspberry (Misc.) Just happened to catch this online while browsing one day on Amazon.com and thought it was awesome and ingenious! Purchased both the raspberry and purple for Christmas gifts…the recipients of which both crochet. After noticing that they were always struggling with open tote bags, one complaining about the dog hairs getting on her yarn, I immediately bought these. They were a great hit with both, and the colors are very nice. I also purchased the yarn cutter medallion of which could either be worn as a necklace (you supply the cord, chain, etc.) or just hang it on the bag, which is what the recipients did. They hold plenty of skeins of yarn, plus come with a bag that attaches to the drum which holds knitting/crochet needles. Also, there is a small open pouch on the side of the bag that is great for holding pattern books, etc. The lid zips closed and has 2 openings (slits) on the top where you pull the end of the yarn through…thus eliminating the possibility of getting dirt, dust, hair, or whatever on your yarn, and it stays put…won’t roll away anywhere. Also, got free shipping with ordering through Amazon.com. It was a win-win situation for all! Highly recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 56 of 59 people found the following review helpful Great product for the yarn addict 😉, July 15, 2014 By Carol from Texas (Texas) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: ArtBin Yarn Drum 12-inches round by 12-3/4-inches high, Raspberry (Misc.) I’m enjoying my yarn drum. It’s large and easily holds 4-6 skeins. It has two handles to choose from for toting it off to a group event or even around the house. The washable outer fabric also makes it a good choice for bringing your project to a picnic or the beach. The two slits at the top are convenient for pulling your working yarn through but what I really like about them is that small projects can be pushed into the slit for storage or with larger projects, you can pull the entire skein through and out the top. The attached tool caddy is good size and I like it can be attached to the outside. No chance of losing it and no need to dig through the yarn inside to find it. The pocket in the front comes in handy as a quick place to stick something of frequent use such as a scissors. I knocked off one star in the review due to it’s collapsible nature. Nice feature if you want to store the empty drum but I believe most people using an item such as this are constant crocheters/knitters and would have the drum in play all the time. I used two pieces of cardboard the width & height of the drum and interlocked them down the middles creating in effect four chambers which holds the item in an upright and not collapsible position. I’ve found in doing this another benefit: as the skeins run out, the chambers are keeping the yarns from tangling together. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
