    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
