Knotting Tool for yarn business
« on: June 07, 2019, 08:12:50 AM »
Hello there! I?m actually a business owner and I?m trying to find a tool that will do an overhand knot with two pieces of yarn. I own a very small dyeing business and spend a great deal of time tying overhand knots in order to keep the yarn neat and tidy. For each skein of yarn I have to tie three knots over hand and I find myself spending more time tying knots than dyeing yarn. Any devices would be very helpful.

Probably not practical for your application, but hay balers have a mechanical knotter that ties an overhand bend (aka European Death Knot).
