Umbrella Swift, Glimakra – 1 to 2 yd
FREE SHIPPING within Canada! Canadian orders only.
From GLIMAKRA of Sweden, a company long-known for its quality products. Regular-sized swift, holds skeins 1 to 2 yards in circumference. Unfinished birch wood construction. Can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
A swift is designed to hold a skein under tension while winding it into a ball on a ball winder (as shown in the picture -- ball winder not included) or by hand. People that don't own a skein winder also sometimes use a swift to wind balls or cones of yarns into skeins. They sort of work for this purpose but nowhere as efficiently as a real skein winder.
Note: ships separately from other items on your order because of the awkward box size.
