These are the original Swedish swifts, often copied, but there is no match to these authentic swifts. Umbrella Swifts are made from birch, the large swift holds skeins up to 100 in. around. They are constructed and finished to get the most appropriate surface for the yarn. These are the original Swedish made swifts and not an imitation. Look for Sweden on the logo. You can clamp these swifts to stand vertically, as shown. Or you can mount them horizontally which can make for easier unwinding. Use the swift in conjunction with a ball winder to make center pull balls from your skeins of yarn. A swift is used to hold a skein of yarn. You simply unfold the skein, slip it over the swift and push the swift open. It unwinds as you make balls or measure a warp. Our Swedish wooden swift is a traditional Scandinavian style. It holds skeins up to two pounds and 100 inches in circumference.
