Yarn Swift - Birch

$49.99 23% off

An essential tool for any knitter or crocheter, the Yarn Swift holds your hanks or skeins of yarn in place as you wind them into balls.

Simply clamp the swift onto a table or counter top to start winding yarn neatly and easily. Starting with the umbrella in the down position, place the open loop of the hank over the swift and pull it lightly so the far side of the hank is against the center of the umbrella. Then, use your free hand to slide up the umbrella clamp and open the umbrella to snuggly fit the circumference of the hank. Finally, secure the umbrella clamp in place and then wind away!

For added durability, the swift features metal hardware. The metal screws feature a plastic stopper at the end to prevent scratches when clamping the swift onto a table. For best results, use in tandem with the Knit Picks ball winder. Measures approx. 26" (66cm) in diameter (68"/173cm circumference) and 26" (66cm) tall when open. Clamp opening fits tables up to 1 1/2" thick.

Note for retail customers: This item ships separately. No additional charges are required. Orders containing a swift cannot be expedited. If you wish to have the rest of your order expedited, place a separate order for the swift.

My boyfriend got me this for Valentine’s Day. I used it for the first time today and I love it!

The first swift delivered was broken, however as soon as I contacted customer service, they popped a new one in the post immediately. Great service.

Love it! I've been watching this for some time and caught it with a sale discount plus storage bag free. Still had money in the bag for YARN. I was able to cake four hanks in under an hour.

Since I have got a defective one, I asked to exchange to their customer service. There was literally no hustle. They immediately sent new one. Thanks so much for the great customer service.

I received this as a gift purchased on Amazon. Unfortunately I did not have cause to use it until the day after the return period ended and when I did, one of the arms disconnected from the top midway through my first use of the swift. The hole where the wood arm secures to the wire at the top had cracked and is not easily fixable. Very disappointed that this did not live up to the quality I usually expect from knitpicks. Make sure you test your swift promptly before the return period ends! NOTE FROM KNIT PICKS: Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-574-1323. We would be happy to take care of this for you!
