Welcome to the Etsy home of Fiber Artist Supply Co.! We're a small manufacturer of handcrafted knitting and weaving supplies located in Cincinnati, OH. Founded in 2007 in Chicago, IL, we have been working hard to bring high-quality, yet reasonably priced hardwood supplies to our customers.

The yarn swift was our very first item back in 2007 and still remains one of our most popular! Our 2016 model melds the simplicity of our popular tabletop swift arm design with the stability and durability of a new metal ball bearing system. Other tabletop yarn swifts --often referred to as "Amish style"-- rely on a wood-on-wood drive system that can lead to loose fit and excessive "play" in the arms as they spin.

For this project we bring together maple and cabinet grade maple plywood to create a yarn swift that will last for many years, but also won't set you back as much as umbrella-style swifts. The tabletop design also gives users the flexibility to wind or unwind from anywhere they can place the swift --we often wind onto our ball winder from the floor. Traction Pads on the base keep the item in place as it spins.

Aside from the ability to unwind from this swift, it also has the added flexibility of functioning as a capable skeinwinder for home use. When four of the 3/8" birch pegs are placed at identical spots along the arms, users can create skeins of 24", 36", 48", 60", or 72" in circumference.
