Yarn Ball Winder


Transform hanks or skeins into compact center-pull balls that sit nicely while you knit. A clamp secures the ball winder to the table while you wind skeins up to 100 grams or 3.5 ounces. Best when used in tandem with a Yarn Swift.

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.

I have no idea why reviews are stating that no handle comes with the winder? Mine has a handle and works amazingly well. I love how it can be placed on any flat surface basically, it fits anywhere you can think of. I am extremely happy with this winder, much better quality and cakes than my previous crap one from Hobby Lobby. I adore it

This little winder has worked like a charm when I have a lot of large pieces of skeins to wind. I wish there were a couple of smaller sized center tube to change out for winding smaller gauge yarn. That is the only down side to this cute little helper

I’m So disappointed it doesn’t come with a handle! ?? if I had known that I would have purchased a different brand.

I like this winder but am VERY disappointed that it does not come with a handle.

When it works, it works fairly well, but it's not a winder built to last. I had mine for 2-3 years (winding maybe 2-3 skeins per month) before it started making an extremely loud snapping noise and being very stiff while winding. If you're on a budget this is a good buy, but if you can wait and save up I'd buy elsewhere.
