The perfect swift if you enjoy detangling yarn
on October 14, 2013
Sadly, my tabletop umbrella swift broke and is no longer being manufactured, so I bought this swift with the hope that it would be an acceptable replacement. Well, if you enjoy spending your time detangling yarn that flies off the swift instead of using your yarn for crafting projects, this is the perfect swift for you. The use of pegs (rather than an umbrella style that can be perfectly adjusted to the yarn) does not allow for exact placement of the yarn, which rides up the pegs and comes off the swift. I wound several hanks and did not succeed at winding any one of them without having to stop to adjust the swift along the way. I have a large umbrella swift that is inconvenient to use, but I will have to use more often; this swift just does not perform as well.
