WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder 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 60". 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.

Separately, the swift retails for $49.99 and the ball winder for $45.99. Buy them together for an incredible deal that you won’t find anywhere else!

Please disregard the backorder status. This item is in stock and ready to ship.

    I have been wanting to buy these for quite some time. I have gotten into the habit of winding my yarn into a ball (more like an egg for me) before starting a project so I do not run into any knot along the way. Now that I am into knitting socks and I have bought some hanks, I needed a swift too! I just bought it yesterday so I have only wound a few balls of yarn so far. It is so quick and easy! I love how it feeds from the center and the cake of yarn does not move anymore while I am knitting! I am very happy with these two products!!!

    Works great

    Seems a little flimsy but works great. Being careful with it just in case.

    Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo:

    It works great and makes hanks or leftover skeins into balls with ease. I love that it makes center pull balls (can pull from the outside if you choose).

    The "directions" with the swift are good for a laugh but not much else. The translation is terrible and I still laugh over pushing the non-existent "red buffon" (orange button). Since I'd never used one or seen one, the directional video on Webs' website was a definite plus.

    The swift seems a little flimsy but I've used it a ton and it's holding up very well. The ball winder can be a bit moody with certain yarns but it's still 100 times easier than hand winding and going nice and slow with those yarns gets the job done.

        I love these two items - I have them set up and leave them up all the time. It makes winding yarn so much easier than winding it into a ball. I recommend it highly!

          Comments about WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo:

          I kept going back and forth on getting an all wood swift or the metal ones. I like the look of the wood ones, but the wood screw to tighten it down with didn't seam like such a great idea. I'm very happy with this purchase. The swift is compact enough to store away and easy enough to use. It turns very smoothly (perhaps too smoothly). I haven't used a real heavy hank on it yet, but overall it seems to be worth the money spent.

          The ball winder is great as well. Not much I can say about it other then it works like it is suppose to.

          I also did 2 day shipping and it was here before expected. WEBS is great and I will order from them again!

          When ordering yarn on-line, it often doesn't arrive wound in a ball. This will save me hours of winding by hand.

          As usual, delivery was prompt so I could get started right away.

          I can't believe the time it saves. I was using a chair back and it took hours. Inevitably there were kinks when I unwound yarn and it could be so frustrating. really like this combo.

          Service and delivery comments:

          WEBS delivery Is great. Very prompt and good customer service response.
