    • Great for hobby, not for pro use
      Verified Purchase

      For the money, this swift does the job and would be good for a hobby crafter, but as a professional designer with a heavy volume use, mine broke after a couple of months and was irreparable. The joints seem flimsy and the whole thing wobbles like crazy, even after I had my husband tighten it. I tried it at various angles and it just wouldn't hold still! Still, if I only had to use it occasionally, I wouldn't want to spend more on a nicer one. But since I use it every day, I now need to spend more to get better quality. Oh, this one squeaked horribly, but a little WD-40 fixed that.

    • Lacis lightweight yarn swift
      Verified Purchase

      The swift is exactly as advertised. I do suggest mounting it as shown in the pictures so that it is side mounted instead of straight up on a table. If mounted going upwards on a table, the tail end of the yarn is likely to wind around the shaft of the swift. It's very easy to set up and use, and easy to take down. There is a plastic case included, and it can be a tad fussy to close up but I suspect over time it will become easier. It is truly a lightweight swift, I doubt it could handle a skein of bulky weight yarn like Cascade Eco, but for 50-100 gram skeins of laceweight to worsted, it's great. It's a great travel swift for people who go to knitting camps, etc.

    • Very useful, well-made little yarn swift.
      Verified Purchase

      This swift is plastic, instead of wood like all the more expensive models, but I think that makes it even less likely to snag the yarn. The umbrella swift performed just as I expected it to, and it only cost half what the others do when they're on sale! I've never been able to afford one before. I also appreciated the fact that it had a hard plastic case for storage, so it is well protected as I lug it around!

      Using it for winding sock and lace weights yarn. Suggest purchasing wood swift if your winding needs are frequent and have heavier weight yarns.

      Great product for travel size, but I would buy a stronger wooden one if I would be using it a lot.

    • nice
      Verified Purchase

      The umbrella held up for 4yrs of winding, but now it starts to 'close up' while winding. I have to cover the 'slider' that keeps it open with tape when using it, other than that, I've gotten my moneys worth out of it. No other complaints.

    • Great to have one at home
      Verified Purchase

      Used to go to my local yarn shop to wind large skeins, but it's so nice to do it at home. This swift is a good price and is ease to set up and take down. I can't get it to fit back in its storage case, but that doesn't really bother me.

      Works well, stores small. I like it. Winds a 4.25 ft skein--if it did 2 yard skeins it would be perfect!
