Brilliant “machine”. I love how simple it was to put together and use and the sturdy tapestry bag was a delightful bonus. I also bought the ball turner and love it too.
Amazing Amish Style Swift
From ordering, to quick delivery to a graceful product to use, this compacr swift ticks all the boxes. I bought it with the yarn winder and they work in sychronous beauty to wind yarn cakes from my huge stash of skiens- yarn for knitting and tatting cotton too.
I have now used my new swift with my ball winder to successfully ball skeins of wool. It was simple to assemble and ran smoothly. I like having a pouch to keep all the pieces together. I am a spinner and would use the swift to skein home spun yarn if the middle knob was more of a turning handle.
Swift Amish style
My original intention was to purchase a ball winder, actually a birthday present from my husband. Wanted one for a while so this was good timing. Then saw the Amish style swift. It looked more attractive than the traditional swifts. I was a bit worried that it would be stable and not heavy enough but it is just perfect. Good to look at, compact for storage and does the job perfectly. Beautifully crafted does not snag even the most delicate yarn. Very, very happy with my new Amish style swift.
