TOIKA Upright Swift

An essential tool for spinners, weavers and dyers, swifts are ideal for unwinding skeins.  Also called a squirrel, this tool can accommodate very large skeins.  Height:  55”, width 16”, width between rollers:  9.5” The space between the cages is adjustable. The side supports have holes drilled at intervals and the cages are supported by rods that pass through the holes in the uprights, making it possible to adjust for different skein sizes.

    Comments about Toika Upright Swift:

    Gift from my sister. When I opened the box I felt like I was looking at a giant tinker toy.

    There are no instuctions on the manufacture's website and nothing included with the Switft.
    -Basically carefully attach long pieces to the bottom/cross pieces. attach the smaller end cap to the screw and inset into the pre-drilled hole. Attach the larger end cap and using the tool provided, screw it onto the threaded screw until snug.

    Comments about Toika Upright Swift:

    I was able to figure out the assembly (no instructions) without too much difficulty.

    The finishing of the wood is a bit rough so I plan to sand it down so "sticky" yarn does not snag.

    I really like this device for winding multiple skeins of hand-painted yarn all in the same orientation. I just load multiples on the device and wind them into a ball one at a time.

    My husband bought me a squirrel swift and I use it constantly. My umbrella swift sits in a corner. This never overbalances and works beautifully
