Knitting Yarn Ball Winder


Transform hanks or skeins into compact center-pull balls that sit nicely while you knit. As with our Options needles, we interviewed knitters to find out what they would like best in a ball winder, what we found is that everyone is different. Some knitters prefer to hold their ball winder while some prefer to clamp it to a table, so we created a ball winder that could do both. Use the clamp for tables or connect the ergonomic handle to use when you want to hold it. Best when used in tandem with a Yarn Swift. Ball winder holds approx 100 grams or 3.5 ounces of yarn.

Note: The metal yarn guide arm comes folded against the ball winder for shipping. The guide arm needs to be moved and positioned opposite the winding handle for correct operation.

This is a very good ball winder for the price--the size and build are comparable to my Royal winders, but the action is not quite as smooth. I LOVE the handle on it, though--sometimes you don't have a good place to clamp a ball winder, and using this one with the handle is great! I also like the clamp--it is just enough wider than my Royal ball winder so that I can clamp it to the table next to my chair. This is FAR better than slightly more expensive no-name ball winders I have bought, and perfect for beginners or to give as a gift. I am very happy with my purchase, and will buy another one for my travel kit.
