WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift 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 100". 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.

If the ball winder and wooden swift are in stock, please disregard the backorder status of this combo. This item is in stock and ready to ship.

        Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

        Finally, after many, many years of winding hanks of yarn by hand (using the back of a chair) and being frustrated by knots and tangling, I decided to invest in a swift and ball winder -- and am so glad I did. Now, instead of taking 1/2 hour or more to wind a hank manually, it takes about 5 minutes -- and best of all, no tangles at all. I love the way the swift and ball winder work together. If I were to buy a buy winder again, I would consider an electric one, vs the one you have to wind manually. Not a big deal, but that way both my hands would be free and I could be knitting while winding at the same time.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very quick and the products arrived in a big box and in excellent condition. The shipping wasn't cheap ($30.00 CAD) however, it was well worth it as the package was quite heavy and cumbersome and price-wise the swift and ball winder combo were less expensive than one locally that was comparable. Customer service at WEBS is awesome -- very prompt, courteous and knowledgeable.

          I received the combo swift and ball winder in less than a week from ordering it. Shipping to Canada was pricey as the box was heavy and big, but it was worth the $32.00 shipping as I have not seen a similar product in Canada. The combo swift and ball winder are easy to use. The swift did not come with instructions but luckily YouTube had tons of 'how to' videos. The ball winder did come with very detailed instructions. Quality is very good and very easy to use. I would three skeins in about 10 minutes -- usualy it would take me an hour / skein to wind manually so it's a great time saver and the cakes turn out beautifully.

                I've been wanting one of these for about a year and was not disappointed with the ease of use and the quality of the wound balls. I think the trouble I'm having with raising the swift may be due to the newness of the mechanism.
                The Ball Winder is as promised.

                  This winder is easy to use and seems pretty sturdy. The swift is good quality, as well. I'm glad I finally broke down and bought a winder after so many years without one. No regrets!

                    Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

                    I purchased this combo because the swift has a screw in nut for holding the swift open & in place. The other reason is that the combo includes the royal brand ball winder. Both of these products are high quality & easy to use. My daughter can operate them ( after I get it set up with the yarn) making this a great product as I have learned its not the best to wind those expensive fibers & store them for long lengths of time. Now I can store them & wind them when ready for use!

                          I wanted this for a long time. Everytime I buy yarn I forget to have the yarn put into center pull balls and this ball winder is easy and fun to use.
