      Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift:

      I am a weaver and when I purchase yarn from a shop it needs to be wound into a ball for easier weaving!

            This is merely "okay". Some hanks are so wide that they can barely be accommodated on the very widest expansion of the swift. Occasionally a stray strand of yarn will get caught on some parts of the swift. For the price, it's okay; don't know yet if it will hold up under many uses.

                  The product only arrived a couple of days ago so cannot comment on it except to say that anything would be an improvement on supporting hanks with my hands/arms whilst winding!

                    I've had a wooden swift in the past and it wasn't sanded smooth and the yarn caught on the arms. I have some fine silk to do and didn't want to use the wooden swift so I borrowed one like I purchased and it did a lovely job.

                      Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift:

                      The thing I particularly like about this swift is that it opens easily, and adjustments to width can be made easily using a push button apparatus. It also can be set up to work sideways, although I've not yet tried that. I have, however, had occasion to use the handle on top of the swift, which allows you wind yarn on it--sort of replacing a knitty noddy.

                        I love having the swift but my husband was disappointed that I bought it. He always enjoyed helping me with this task.

                          Sure, if you buy all your yarn at the LYS they will wind your yarn into balls for you. But, if you see a great deal for yarn that you purchase online, you are left to manually convert the hank to a ball.

                          It used to take me several hours to turn a 470 yard hank into a ball using manual methods. Now, using my ball winder and yarn swift, the same job takes only 10 minutes.

                          I'm so glad that I broke down and spent the money! I'm not sure how it will hold up over time and lots of use, but I will be happy to update my review later with that information.
