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. If both the ball winder and swift are in stock, this item will be ready to ship. 

$69.99 each
  • Backordered $69.99

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!!!

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

      I'm a fairly new knitter (less than a year knitting), and I was winding my skeins of yarn by hand. I had so many tangles to work through, but I just figured that was part of learning. After encouragement from a knitting friend I finally ordered this set, and I am not disappointed! Excellent investment and possibly a marriage saver!

        The swift and ball winder arrived before I expected them to. Both are exceptionally easy set up and to use. I highly recommend this combo for anyone.

          Have a lot of lace weight and sock yarn that has languished on the shelf because I can't stand the inevitable knotting that happens half way through ball-winding by hand. No more using my knees or the chair back and four-letter words to get a nice ball of yarn!

              I've wanted a swift and ball winder for ages. I couldn't be happier. 400 yards of sock yarn wind in just minutes, when it used to take hours. I wish I'd bought this sooner.

                    I already have the same swift, so I'm gifting this one. It works quite well for the money, I'm guessing pricier ones are a little smoother. Yarn occasionally gets caught in the metal hooks on top, but it's a fine product. I've only used the ball winder once and the operation is nice and smooth. The clamping mechanism is a little awkward to use. I don't see why the center needs to be so large though. It leaves a huge empty column in the center which makes the yarn ball bigger and less effective on my nice wood yarn holder.

                        When you open up the swift to secure the yarn in place, be careful not to use too much force (it doesn't require any). I slightly bent one of the metal ribs because I didn't notice there was something in the way and kept forcing. The bend was easily straightened and does not cause any problems.
