Stanwood qualiy comes through again! I wanted to order this with my Stanwood large yarn winder but it was out of stock. It was worth the wait. Swift appears to be of high quality and works very well.
Stanwood Needlecraft - Wooden Umbrella Swift Yarn Winder - Large, 8.5 ft
- Calculated at Checkout
This brand new LARGE size yarn swift is made of birch with a fine finish by sanding. The large size can hold skeins up to 8.5-ft in circumference. It spins smoothly and makes yarn winding a fun job. The clamp-on base allows it to be firmly fixed at the edge of tables, chairs, benches, or any convenient locations up to 1 3/4 inches thick. The craftsmanship on these swifts is superior. We avoid wood pieces with scars or blemishes so that our yarn swifts are less vulnerable to breakage and more appealing aesthetically. The ends of metal tying wires are hidden into holes and will never hurt your hands or the yarn.

Great swift. Runs smoothly and quickly. No yarn snags or abrupt stops. Great product.
I have purchased 4 swifts from this company. Two large and two medium. Highly recommended. Good sturdy quality
I like the wooden construction of this winder. It assembles easily, clamps securely onto the table and spins pretty quietly for its size. Afterward, I can take it down and store it in the box it was shipped in. Very pleased.
I wanted to love this umbrella swift; however my expectation fell short. I find the swift gets stuck if I pause in my winding. It is difficult to start back winding and feels as if the wood will crack.
I bought the yarn winder and swift. I bought the large swift. It is very nicely built and gets the job done.
It was a pleasure doing business with Stanwood. Easy to order, and the product was shipped and arrived very quickly. My yarn swift is very well made and works perfectly.
I own a yarn store in Winnetka, Illinois, and this is my second swift. The first one I didn't buy from Stanwood and I lived to regret it. I am so enamored with my Stanwood Umbrella Swift. It's the best I had ever had. My son is visiting my store more often, just in case he can "help" wind yarn for me. He finds it fascinating.
I also own a ball winder from them that is phenomenal. Their products are just of exceptional quality and I will not buy anything else for my store.
I just ordered these, as the ones I had were too small. Have wound several hanks already and so far I am very pleased with the quality, and the efficiency of the two products !! Also very pleased with the customer service and the speed with which the product was shipped. Very good experience. Would definitely order more from this company !!
