Thank you for considering my Travel Skein Winder for your spinning needs.
When you spin beautiful yarn, you want to use the best equipment with it. I wanted to make something that would be sturdy and long lasting, but something that had both beautiful form and was functional at the same time. And here it is. An exquisite piece of craftsmanship, that will make the job of winding up skeins a joy.
It is made out of various hand selected woods and is designed to spin freely on a brass center spindle. This eliminates binding during use. The skein winder comes with 5 “hooked” pegs (one is extra) that are almost 6” tall and a bag to keep them together when not in use. The pegs are designed with a gentle curve and a hook, which hugs the skein of yarn as it revolves, helping to prevent slipping and allowing thicker skeins. It also has a pair of Nylon washers to facilitate smooth rotation.
The swift has rubber feet on the base, which protects the surface it stands on and prevents it from sliding around while in use. Being a “travel” skein winder, it is only designed to make 36” circumference hanks. This is marked on one of the arms for an easy reminder. The winder folds up neatly when not in use, for easy storage and travel.
None of my swifts are stained. They come with a clear Lacquer finish and just need the occasional dusting for upkeep.
This is a wood product, variation in grain and color are normal. There may also be dark streaks or small imperfections, that is the nature of wood. Please take this into consideration prior to ordering.
Approx folded size: 2″ x 5.5″ x 13.75″
