    WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift

    This is a light weight swift that is sturdy enough to handle skeins up to 8 oz. Some very useful features include the handle at the top to facilitate making skeins and the fact that the yarn holder can be either vertical or horizontal.

            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.
