We're particularly fond of this table-top yarn swift because it's made in the USA by Beka, a family-owned workshop in Minnesota, making wooden toys, furniture and looms for more than 40 years.
Beka's Natural Hard Maple Yarn Swift features durable metal bearings (also made in the USA) for a consistently smooth winding process. It accommodates a wide range of skein sizes (28" to 72") and yarn types (thin to bulky), sits conveniently on any table top, and eliminates table scratching caused by clamps used to secure other types of swifts. Assembly is simple and takes just a few minutes; no tools required.
Ideal for winding twist skeins into balls by hand or with hand-cranked mechanical winders. Electric winders should be used only at low speed.
Izzy Knits customer review ... "I absolutely love this yarn swift. It was easy to put together and spins so smoothly. Best of all, my yarn doesn't snag on this like it does on my umbrella swift. I highly recommend!" —Debbie H (New York, NY).
