Keep your loose ends tidy in style with End Minders! Suavest Sheep are a versatile notion handy for every project. These sheep shaped bobbins await your yarn to make their fleece colorful. Each set of sheep comes in its own crystal corral perfect for storing spares with your project or keeping your flock organized with your other notions.
This newest iteration of end minders is laser cut and etched from natural Cedar or Beech hardwoods Cedar has unique color variations and is well known for its moth-repelling properties. Beech is a lighter color of wood with a unique pattern of flecks. Both are lightweight and sturdy.
The Suavest Sheep can be used for:
- tidying the cast on end
- holding yarn joined in the middle of the project
- wrapping yarn as color swatch to carry with you
- displaying left overs of your favorite yarn
- gifting left overs with a project just incase repairs are needed
Suavest Sheep function well to keep six inches to one yard of fingering, sport, dk, or worsted weight yarn tidy. A one foot yarn length is ideal to create a moderately fluffy sheep.
- hold end of yarn on the sheep's heart
- wrap yarn around the sheep and over the yarn end
- when only about an inch of yarn is left press it into the the slot behind the neck
- the closer the sheep is to the work, the better
- et viola, your end is now guarded by the sheep and will not get tangled while you knit.

These cedar wooden carved yarn tail holders seemed like a perfect solution to those dangly ends. In fact, I ordered two types Sheep and cat;
Unfortunately, the sheep broke almost immediately at the join . (head broke off - unrepairable). Seems like the cat would be more sturdy since it was one solid piece but I haven't tried those yet. .
In general my advice would be to watch for "Sturdiness" should I want to buy again.
I LOVE my end minders. I have the plastic butterfly ones already that I had to have the cedar ones when they came out, as I tend to have issues with moths at home. They’re perfectly smelly and work so well. Since starting to use them, I haven’t had any moth issues with my WIPs, so definitely recommend.
I purchased the little cedar (wood) sheep end minders. They are adorable!!!!!!!! While I’m working on my knitting projects.. they just make me smile. Best purchase in a long time. :)
Love this sheep yarn tail holder. It works beautifully. Nice to see a knitting item that really is functional and not just another sales pitch for profit.
