This is the type of swift we use in the shop for converting skeins/hanks of yarn into balls (in conjunction with a ball winder). Much better than other styles we have used because the yarn won't accidentally slip off and leave you with tangled spaghetti!
Also, it can handle small - large diameter skeins/hanks, is made of high quality natural birch with a smooth non-snagging finish, it's easy to put up and take down, and it's a real thing of beauty!
I bought one of these wonderful Knit Pro Yarn Swift winders from Tribe Yarns and am so happy with it. I had hesitated for a long time in purchasing a swift but these are so well m... view moreade, and easy to use. I did buy a knit pro ball winder as well but at the time could not get one from Millie at Tribe Yarns so had to go elsewhere, but the two together are amazing. I am so pleased I made the investment to purchase and now am able to wind my yarn into near cakes and it takes so little time! view less
