ORIGIN — India

If needed, it is  a good idea to clean with muslin or shammy.  I do not recommend using beeswax since I have not personally tested this theory on these products; therefore, I cannot say with certainty that it works or that it will not damage the needles. Besides, I do not recommend using anything on your ball winder as it may void the warranty.

I do suggest to store it safely while not in use. Please keep it out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight - too much heat will make the smooth finish dull.

Lastly, I also do not recommend using any lotions on your hands while using it - certain chemicals react with the wood, causing the finish to become dull very quickly. 

This beautiful product is handcrafted and assembled in India, using production routines that do not rely on mechanized automation. Instead, their products benefit from the skilled and graceful human touch of their skilled Indian craftspeople. Revenue from the sale of LYKKE Crafts products also serves to Make Happy in that community through varied benefit programs for the workers, their children, and the community. We are so happy and proud to support the growth and development of the local economies.
