Stanwood Needlecraft - Wooden Umbrella Swift Yarn Winder - Medium, 6 ft
- FREE domestic, others calculated at Checkout
This Medium size yarn swift is made of solid wood and finished by extra fine sanding (no toxic varnish fume). The Medium size can hold skeins up to 6-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 edges of tables, chairs, benches, or any other convenient locations. It fits edges up to 1-3/4 inches thick. The craftsmanship on this yarn swift is superb. 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.

I've been very happy with my swift. The finish on the wooden slats is so smooth, the yarn never catches or snags on it. Once I really start winding the yarn, I can get up to a good speed on the swift. It also slows down just as easily when my winding slows down.
The only issue I have is with the wooden screw that holds the swift arms open. The end of the screw is very smooth, almost varnished. Sometimes it loosens its grip on the vertical spindle. I've roughed the end up just a little. I now make sure the screw is tight, and don't have as much of an issue with it.
I appreciated being able to have my order shipped through the post office. Thank you!
It came quickly and it's beautiful! This makes winding my yarn so much easier!
I purchased the Medium, 6 ft - Wooden Umbrella Swift Yarn Winder. I am very pleased with the product.
This is a lovely swift with good clearance at the clamp. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Excellent quality and fast shipping
Very happy with this product! It is well constructed, easy to assemble, operates smoothly and collapses for easy storage. The price was the best I found anywhere and was delivered the day after I ordered.
So glad I bought this. Makes winding my hanks into balls much easier. No more tangles or using the backs of chairs.
Works like a dream! Very smooth operation. My husband did good!
