  • Excellent product - works great

    This swift is just what I needed. To know whether you need this size or the next larger, I used this one to wind a hank of Socks that Rock, and it held it just fine. The finish is smooth, and it clamped to the table securely with no wobbles. Just be sure and check all the ties before you pull it too far out of the box - one of mine was undone and I needed to retie it.

  • Great Value

    The swift winder is the perfect size for home use. I have used it several times in the last week, and it works perfectly. It is all wood and feels sturdy. I saw similar items priced much higher elsewhere.

  • She loved it!

    I purchased this as a gift for a friend and she loves it. It is very easy to use and looks just like the one they use at my local yarn shop. I like that it is made of wood (not plastic) and seems very sturdy in it's construction. Highly recommend!

  • Fun to use tool.

    This is a great tool. It works smoothlyand quietly, and is made of nice wood, not metal. It is super easy to mount and is very firm. I never used one and wound up 11 balls of heavy cotton yarn the first night quickly and without a problem. Have fun!

  • Swift Yarn Winder

    The sections are tied together in a so so fashion. Getting the screw clamp to stay is next to impossilbe. We tried it in several tables,

  • Great Swift!

    This is a great basic swift for a good price! I have had it for approximately 3 years and it works just as well today as the day I bought it. It's all wood which I like and clamps on to a table so make sure you have some place you can clamp it! I'm very happy with it!

  • Love it.

    A little pricy, but worth it for me. Beats standing in line at the yarn shop and waiting to wind the yarn there. Good product.

  • Stay away! Not recommended

    Out of the box, one of the top arms was not properly inserted under the metal ring, and this is not something that one could fix at home. It was clearly something that should have been caught at the factory. The whole thing is made of this light wood, which is fine, including the clamps that hold it down to the table, and height adjustment clamp. Being cheap wood, there is no way you can tighten it enough to hold it down, and I can imagine that this would only get worse. Although since it didn't work out of the box, not sure how it could get much worse! Shipping also took over 2 weeks. In the meantime I had ordered an amish-swift on another site, just like this: http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Amish-Design-Wooden-Yarn-Swift/6203888/product.html. Not only is it cheaper, takes up less room, it works like a charm. Much simpler design too - really nothing can go wrong with it.

  • I love this product

    I have been hand-winding hanks of yarn all my life and finally decided to purchase a swift yarn winder...some of the best money I ever spent! Many yarn shops offer this service for customers, but if you are not using the yarn immediately, it causes a loss of stretch to wind it too early. Also, there is often a wait to have large quantities done at the shops. This wonderful product enables me to wind my yarn whenever I want in whatever quantities I wish. The price on overstock.com was also unbeatable. I only wish I had made this purchase sooner.
