Wool Tree Mill is a family-operated maker of fine hardwood tools designed to enhance the experience of working with yarn. We began making heirloom-quality hardwood fiber arts tools over forty years ago.
Our signature tool is a yarn reel that we call the Wool Tree spindle. The reverse of a yarn winder, it is like a lazy susan for yarn, with the addition of a unique yarn guide. The Wool Tree spindle controls any yarn ball or skein, allowing it to unwind smoothly as you work.
Our Virginia shop also makes lucets, drop spindles, tool organizers, and other accessories.
Lucets are Medieval-era tools for making strong cord much better and more easily than i-cord. Lucets have been making practical drawstrings, shoelaces, bracelets, and other jewelry for over five hundred years. Lucet cording is easy to learn with the step-by-step illustrated instructions included. Once you learn, you may be eager to share the simple technique with everyone you know, so we also offer a larger teaching lucet for demonstrating the cording process with small groups.
Our perfectly engineered Greek Cross drop spindles offer the longest spin available anywhere. The unique design works either high-whorl or low-whorl.
Our knitting and crocheting tool organizers, which keep your tools sorted and close at hand, are as innovative as they are beautiful.
