Yarn Ball Winders & Swifts
Yarn ball winders and yarn swifts are nifty tools that make turning unruly hanks and skeins of yarn into a neat ball a breeze. Usually used together, the swift holds the hank or skein in place, and turns as you pull the yarn off, while the winder wraps the yarn into a ball. The finished ball will unravel from the inside. While you can use the swift alone, a winder - manual or electric - will work a lot faster than your hands. Electric winders are the speediest, but you’ll need to position yourself near a plug, while manual winders can be used anywhere. Say goodbye to chasing your yarn across the floor as you knit or crochet, and hello to neat balls of yarn!
