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:

    I love my winder & swift and wonder how I ever got along without it before. I have all these lovely stackable cakes of yarn that don't run across the room when I am working on fair isle. I heartily recommend this set up to anyone who knits a lot. So glad I bought them.

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

      This swift and ball winder combo was easy to set up and start using. The swift seems to get crosswise of itself easily but is just as easily straightened out. Probably a wooden swift would not have the same issues. Overall I'm glad I got this combo, I tend to end up liking yarns that come in hanks rather than balls and winder saves a lot of time.

        Great for winding balls to use to fill weaving shuttles. Works fine, much more affordable than lovely traditional wood.

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

            Both were impossible to use - the yarn kept winding incorrectly on both, the winder broke very easily. I would never recommend either to anyone. I have since bought a wood swift and better winder - so I know that they do work when made properly.

                After a few minor problems setting it up,I am happy with this winder, it works well. I don't use the metal loop thingy as the wool just seems to slip off, but have discovered if you apply tension by holding the yarn you get a tighter/looser skein.

                The instructions provided for set up were not crystal clear, but I finally got it up. For the price, it works great. Obviously, I will need some time to become better at using it.
