Diz for Spinning

5.00

A diz is used for combing top to prepare fiber for spinning worsted yarn. This bamboo diz is laser cut with three precise hole sizes to pull your fiber through: 1.5mm, 3mm and 5mm. It is 2" x 3" and cut from 1/8" bamboo. Each piece is hand sanded after laser cutting to smooth out corners and edges. Because it is made of a natural material, the appearance of each needle gauge may slightly vary.
The word diz makes me think buzz and that's why there's a cute little bee flying around on the front of it. My mom doesn't get it but I think it is cute. If you agree, you may want to use this for drafting when you're spinning worsted yarn.
It is important to me that each item I make is special and bamboo contributes to this as a unique material. Bamboo plywood is sustainable and is stronger than wood. Your needle gauge won't be indestructible but can withstand more than a needle gauge made of birch. Bamboo has a rich history of roles and uses in Asian mythology and culture and is even used in Chinese medicine because of its anti-bacterial properties.
Please contact me if you would like a custom knitting needle gauge based on this design.
