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.
Easy to set up and use
The Amish style swift was very easy to set up and use. It has been beautifully crafted and the finish is very smooth so even very fine yarn does not snag.

Love it!!! I live in small house and had been looking for a swift that completely dismantled for a while . This one is brilliant. Easy to set up and use and packs away compactly.

Thanks Carmel. My design goal was to make it compact for storage. So pleased that I achieved this and that you appreciate the design. Ferg
