Umbrella Yarn Swift - Premium Range
Strong & Sturdy, this solid beech wood umbrella yarn swift is perfect accessory to hold a hank of yarn while it is being wound off. The ribs of the swift are riveted unlike most other umbrella swifts which makes it strong & sturdy.
Simply clamp the swift onto a table or any flat surface to start winding yarn neatly and easily. Starting with the umbrella in the retracted 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 centre of the umbrella. Then open the umbrella to snugly fit the circumference of the hank and use your free hand to screw down the knob at the top to lock the position. Finally, secure the umbrella clamp in place and then wind away.
These umbrella Yarn Swift can also be clamped to the back of a chair, so it turns vertically. They spins smoothly so you will enjoy winding your yarn. The Umbrella Yarn Swift requires little assembly, is almost ready to go and can be easily folded and stored away.
