Snapware Yarn Container Large is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had it before now I really do wish I had one sooner. When my mom was in the hospital for a procedure I took my knitting with to pass the time. Without warning my ball of yarn slipped from my lap and rolled several feet across the crowded waiting room floor! With a yarn-tainer I don't have to worry about that embarrassment again; not to mention keeping the yarn clean. I don't know about putting in a slot as some have suggested--my concern is that the yarn will come out of the slot while knitting. While I think the price is a little high for a cylinder that you can't keep in a closed car, it's worth it if you use a 40-50% off coupon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy an oatmeal box I purchased all three of the yarn tainer units and was disappointed to see that the large holes and lids in the top were all essentially the same size. I could not get a Red Heart Supersaver skein into the large unit without messing up the outside layers of yarn. If you had a problem with the skein, there'd be no way you could get it out without messing it up even more. While you can make a smaller ball that would fit, you'll definitely need to check it frequently to make sure you didn't make it to big. Fortunately, I purchased these when they were 40% off and will use them for other projects, but I'm still working on blankets for the doghouses with those Supersaver's and will have to figure out another way to keep the cats out of the yarn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS !!!!! I have had the medium size for some time now. Happened to be walking around in the store one day and saw it. I had been looking for a container and thought I would try it since the price was good. I LOVE IT! You can easily fit a skein of yarn in it and it stays clean and neat. I dont have to worry about my cat getting ahold of it. I just purchased a LARGE one and I will be bringing that to work with the yarn and working on afghans there and at home. Id love to have a couple more of these. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOLDER FOR YARN I don't understand the complaints with regards to the container not holding the project with the yarn, and closing the lid over the yarn, no slit, etc. This is a YARN holder, holds the ball of yarn inside while working onthe project, When not working on it, the container goes into my knitting bag, the project right beside it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this I had been looking for something, some way to keep my yarn from jumping all over the place and any type of project bag just didn't work well. I was considering purchasing a pottery yarn bowl and then I received an e-mail from JoAnn's and as I was browsing I saw this. I just love it. It's perfect! Wish I had invented it. Saved me from improvising. Will fit nicely into a tote bag for travel. Need to get two more for gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Project Clean I purchased two yarn tainers, one for myself and one as a mother's day present. Both my mom and I love them. Very helpful for the soccer side-line knitter like my mom. Great if you have pets that like to chase yarn balls. Perfect for holding multiple yarn balls, scissors and crochet hooks as well as projects. The container has a hole in the lid that is very easy to thread the yarn through and doesn't pull the yarn fibers apart. Absolutely love this product. Would definately buy again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Yarn Tainer I'd seen these containers for a few months and couldn't decide if I would use it or not but one day, since I had a 1/2 off coupon, I decided to give it a try. I love it! I even bought one for my mother-in-law. When she seen it she wanted one. I enjoy working on small projects like disch cloths, pot holders, purses, market bags and bath puppets and the Yarn Tainer olds three different projects so that I can alternate. Even my husband wants me to buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought one a couple of weeks ago (the medium size) and absolutely love it. It keeps my yarn and needles and whatever other item I need for a project in one place, clean and tangle free. I have 2 cats who love to play with me yarn and that problem is solved! Most of my work lately has been on hats and dishclothes so it is a great size for these projects. I'm going to start on a shawl soon and want to buy the large one to keep that project in.
