I can't believe I waited so long to buy this set. I love being able to wind my yarn at home now. I've found both items to be really easy to set up and use. I still have a bit of a learning curve to go... the first ball was way too loose, the second was on the tight side. Third time was a charm. My best knitting budding is coming to town this weekend and I plan to convince her to make the leap to this set too.

Excellent customer service! I received this fine quality birch swift and yarn winder within three days of placing the order. Received in sturdy packaging. Beautifully wrapped and easy to set-up. Thank you for posting the video guide instructions. Very helpful for a novice user. I highly recommend Stanwood.
I love my new winder and swift! It is the same quality as the one used at my local yarn shop and I also thought that the price was very reasonable compared to other swifts/winders I was looking at online. It is very easy to use and makes winding my yarn a snap!
I haven't had a chance to use it, but it seems to be all in working order. I am mainly amazed that it made it here, I was so worried.
Excellent! The wood on the swift is sturdy, smooth, and beautiful. Construction is good quality. Both yarn swift and winder are easy to assemble and operate so smoothly. Would definitely recommend!!!
Love it. Easy to use and works great!
These worked great from the beginning. Took me about 30 seconds after reading the directions to get started. I'd just say don't wind too fast, and slow down carefully so the umbrella doesn't keep turning when you pause before the ball is finished. I give this one 5 stars.
Great service, excellent products.
Exponentially easier than draping the skein over my knees or the back of a chair, and now I can knit from both ends of the skein (from the cake) for TAAT socks.
