I’ve never had a swift before, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I picked this one because it looked simple, strong, and elegant. (I look for sturdiness so that my little one doesn’t ruin my things.) Because I’m not starting any new projects this minute, I decided to use it to wind a couple hundred yarn balls back into hanks. (I wish I was exaggerating but before I learned that keeping yarn in balls long term was bad for it, I went a little crazy with balling up everything in my stash.) It worked absolutely swimmingly. Within a matter of days I had my entire stash from a giant 1 lb skein of baby yarn (which was almost too much for the swift to handle) to tiny remains of a mostly done skein all done up nice and tidy in hanks. I’ve named it Harley and we are good friends at this point. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Quick and easy set-up! I needed to wind a bit of yarn from a new skein before heading out for the day - set-up, winding, and packing back up was all done in less than five minutes. The rotor can be a bit wobbly, but this is fine for my light use. I appreciate how compactly it stores, too.

I used this yarn swift today and it worked beautifully. I like it for its well-made construction as well as the unique design. It adjusts for any size skein, and it can easily be folded up for easy storage. To top it off, it is made in the USA! How great is that?! Thank you so much!!

I really waffled about swifts/skein winders until finding this one. What a gem! It's beautifully made, smooth as satin, so convenient with the pegs that allow choosing skein size, and so, so easy to use, and then to store flat. I couldn't be happier. Many thanks!
