Included in the kit are the Yarn to Yards balance, a page with the cotton twist gauge and wrap gauge for the charkha, plus additional instructions for measuring very fine yarns.
The Yarn to Yards balance allows you to measure the yards per pound of your yarn.
Place a strand of yarn in the V cutout, cut the yarn until the balance is horizontal, then measure the length of the strand.
Multiplying this length by 100 gives you the yards per pound of the yarn.
This is an indispensable tool for a handspinners and handweavers.

Yarns to yards measure
Great product, but wish it had a metric conversion table on one side as well as the US yard measure. Then it would be more useable in the rest of the world as we are all metric!
