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!!!

      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.

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

                    Longtime knitters, my daughter and i are very pleased to finally be able to wind our own balls of yarn. Once you get the hang of it, it goes pretty smoothly. The only criticism we have is that the moment we set up the ball winder on the counter, one of the two extended plastic "feet" that lodge rest against the counter ledge, immediately cracked off! Luckily, it seems to work anyway, with the rubber clamp being the primary device holding the winder in place. But it's a little disconcerting to have a brand new item have a plastic foot crack off instantly...when you've paid a pretty penny for it. Overall, good product

                    The swift was easy to set up and worked well from the get go. The ballwinder however, was not easy to set up. The guide would not lock at first. When I finally got it to lock things worked better. I do have to still guide alot by hand. But it is working well now.
