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:

    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.

              Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

              My sister, who lives 350 miles from me, purchased this same item prior to my purchase of it. She gave it a very high recommendation and suggested I get one, too. At first, I thought I didn't really need a winder and swift. However, as I added to my yarn stash, I realized that most of my yarn purchases require winding the yarn into a ball. So, I took her advice and purchased it. No regrets! Winding yarn with this gizmo now takes a fraction of the time than doing it manually.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Very prompt service and delivery. Arrived in excellent condition.

                Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

                Bought this b/c I was working on a baby blanket that needed me to hold the yarn doubled. Therefore, I needed a center-pull ball. The LYS would only wind 3 of my 8 skeins. Driving 30min each way to get the others wound was not high on my list. I decided to order this and wind my own. In the past, I've hand-wound balls w/out much complaint. This is heavenly, so glad I have it and can't imagine going back at this point. What a time saver! :) Functions smoothly, and the online videos were easy to understand in getting started on my first ball.

                  Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

                  I must say, WEBS, picked a great combo. Everyone needs a yarn/ball winder and swift dealing with hanks. I knitted and crocheted for 30 plus years fussing making my own ball of yarn, treated myself to my first one. Glad I did. The Swift is made very sturdy, all wood, easy to use, even for the first timer. The ball winder is so easy too. It makes a completely ready ball of yarn to use. WEBS even has a video of how to get started to use it. Thank you WEBS!

                  Comments about WEBS Ball Winder and Wooden Swift Combo:

                  Every time I would go to the Yarn Shop I was intrigued with the swift and ball winder. Of course I assumed it was a device made primarily for Yarn Shops. Since the shop was usually busy I never asked them to wind my skeins. When I found out that I could have one at home I did not hesitate to purchase one. It has saved me hours of time. Have had no problems with it. It works beautifully. It is nicer than the one in the Yarn Shop.

                  When I first ordered the Combo, it was on back order, however it was not a long wait. Web's delivery service is superb!

                    The swift is beautifully made. I had a problem winding at first (my fault, not the product's) and contacted customer service. They answered me promptly and the issue was solved.
