I came across Loome during the Fibershare that I am participating in and this tool caught my eye- not only is it wood, but it is a multi tool that you can do tassels, tiny weavings, and the star; pom poms!
What won me over was the timing that they are doing a "year of making". You basically pick a medium, something doable each day and make it each year. It seems like the perfect match. I get to make pom poms and build up a little stash of natural fiber fluffy joy. I also get to work through those straggler ends of skeins of yarn after projects.
Today I pulled out the last of my skein from Wing and a Prayer yarn and combined it with some alpaca yarn that I had for a lovely first pom pom- all natural wool and alpaca.
I am looking forward to exploring this fiber medium for the next year. What can you make?
