WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo

Tired of using up time winding twist hanks and skeins into balls instead of knitting? Stop using chair backs, family and friends and invest in a ball winder and swift. The swift is sturdy and lightweight and opens to 60". It can hold skeins up to one pound. The clamp at the base allows it to be easily attached to a table edge or shelf and can pivot for use at any angle. The ball winder will create 4 oz. center pull balls.

Separately, the swift retails for $49.99 and the ball winder for $45.99. Buy them together for an incredible deal that you won’t find anywhere else!

Please disregard the backorder status. If both the ball winder and swift are in stock, this item will be ready to ship. 

$84.99 each
  • Backordered $84.99

I have been wanting to buy these for quite some time. I have gotten into the habit of winding my yarn into a ball (more like an egg for me) before starting a project so I do not run into any knot along the way. Now that I am into knitting socks and I have bought some hanks, I needed a swift too! I just bought it yesterday so I have only wound a few balls of yarn so far. It is so quick and easy! I love how it feeds from the center and the cake of yarn does not move anymore while I am knitting! I am very happy with these two products!!!

Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo:

The swift was easy to set up and worked well from the get go. The ballwinder however, was not easy to set up. The guide would not lock at first. When I finally got it to lock things worked better. I do have to still guide alot by hand. But it is working well now.

    Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo:

    I got so tired of winding hanks of yarn by hand! The swift and ball winder work really well. I can sit in my chair and attach the swift to the table on my left and the winder on the right arm of my chair and with little effort have a perfectly wound yarn cake!

    Service and delivery comments:

    The delivery was on time and the packaging was good.

        The swift and winder move so smoothly so there are no hiccups or snags in the winding process.

        Makes winding skeins very easy
        Balls a little loose and fall away easily but not terrible

            This combo works well so far. The cakes,of yarn look just like the ones from the yarn store. I have used the swift to make skeins of yarn that I have unravelled from other projects as well as using it to hold new skeins to wrap into cakes.

              Love having the SWIFT and ball winder. If you get serious about knitting, you will appreciate having these tools at your disposal to wind hanks of yarn into manageable "cakes" of yarn. This is super easy to use and very portable.

              My DH bought me this winder and swift for Christmas because he was sick of holding the yarn for me. I LOVE the winder. I am not as sure about the swift. If I had it to over, I would have had him spend the extra money to get the combo with the wooden swift (I picked the gift). I have not had any problems, I just wish the swift were sturdier. Since I am not knitting with heavy yarn that much right now, it is fine.

                I recently frogged 4 worn out sweaters and used the swift to make skeins of the crimped yarn. Then I washed out the crimp, and wound the yarn into balls on the ballwinder. The combo worked well together.

                I wish the clamps opened wider so that I could use them on my kitchen table, which is 1-3/4 inch thick.
