The main function of a Yarn Bowl is to hold your yarn ball so it doesn't roll all over the room while you're working. Our Medium, Large, and XL Yarn Bowls serve that purpose very well! However, when we started getting numerous requests for bigger bowls, Bob started creating XXL, XXXL and occassionally "Jumbo" Yarn Bowls.
These yarn project bowls serve the same purpose –allowing one or two larger balls of yarn to roll freely in the bowl with the added benefit of extra room to decoratively store your project, extra yarn, tools, pattern, etc.
When purchasing our oversized XXL+ Yarn Project Bowls, please keep in mind that while two balls of yarn will "roll nicely" when using the yarn groove, three or more large balls of yarn will have a tendency to tangle when you feed all individual yarns all together through the groove. If you're purchasing an XXL+ Yarn Bowl in order to work with three or more different large balls rolling in the bowl at one time, please be advised that you'll need to let the balls of yarn pull freely (from the top of the bowl) without locking them into the groove, this should prevent them from tangling in the bowl! Or add a small cup or jelly jar in the middle of the bowl (as shown) creating a "hub". The cup will hold your tools and scraps and enable multiple balls of yarn to pull freely from the top without tangling!
