WEBS Plastic and Metal Swift and Ball Winder Combo

$69.99 Each

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!

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!!!

Over all I like this product and I would recommend it for once in a while use. It was easy to assemble. However I needed to guide the yarn into the feeder in order for it not to slip off. You must wind the yarn slowly to achieve good results.

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

      While on my tenth hour of untangling a very knotted hank of sock yarn, a WEBS deal for the purchase of both the swift and winder popped up on my computer screen and I saw this as a sign for what would become a very wise addition to my cache of knitting accessories. What used to take me almost 30 minutes for winding a ball of yarn (not to mention trying to recruit a "yarn holder" when a chair wasn't available) now takes just a minute or less. The price was excellent, but the amount of time and aggravation saved is priceless. I am very pleased.

      I found this combination to be clumsy and cheap. Given the cost I would have expected better quality and easy of use. Trying to attach them to a table isn't easy.

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

                  I had been using the ball winder and swift at WEBS. When they went on sale, I jumped on it. Both are mostly plastic. I was used to the set-up at WEBS (on top of a bookcase) but like experimenting at home, especially at counter or table height - easier to see what you're doing. I would love a spot where I could just leave the two up all the time but instead have to package them up and store them away when done. Getting them back into their respective boxes is a small challenge. You also need to experiment with your set-up to make sure the yarn doesn't hook at the edges of the swift "umbrella" but all in all a worthwhile purchase. Love the freedom of winding when I feel like it, especially as my stash grows.

                    I use this to wind skeins at home. I am really tired of trying to get a good ball of yarn from winding around the back of a chair.
