Our Yarn Bowls are made from Alaskan Birch. These bowls can take several weeks or even months to process. I look for density, grain pattern and coloring to make an appealing presence. These bowls are made from the end grain or ‘bottom’ of the log so the grain typically has a beautiful pattern at the bottom of the bowl. All bowls are finished inside and out for a durable finish that will give you years of happy knitting!
