Leon Kromski began a wood turning business in 1918 and operated it until 1939 when the impact of WWII and Communism made it impossible to continue. Today the family business is continued by Leon’s sons: Wojciech & Daniel Kromski. Their principal products are spinning wheels – now numbering 7 very distinct and well engineered models, and in 2001, Kromski developed and launched the very popular rigid heddle loom, the Kromski Harp, followed shortly by the Presto. Kromski also manufactures accessories for spinning and weaving, such as spinning stools, niddy noddies, and shuttles.

A Nostepinne is an old-fashioned and handy ball winder with a rich history in Scandinavian culture. This one, made by Kromski, has a nice balanced feel in the hand and makes a nice center-pull ball, without changing the twist in the yarn. A convenient and portable travel companion for when you can't wait to cast on that new skein and a peaceful way to begin any project. Many users find a Nostepinne easier to use with slippery yarns and superwash wools than modern ball winders.
Commonly used slightly less peacefully in theatre reenactment scenes and stage plays.
Available unfinished or with a clear, mahogany or walnut finishes.
