Yarn Swifts and Bowls

So what are Yarn Swifts and Bowls?

What is a Yarn Swift?

A swift is a tool used to hold a hank of yarn while it is being wound off. It has an adjustable diameter so that it can hold hanks of many sizes, and rotates around a central rod.

If your yarn comes in a hank, though, you need to use the ball winder with a swift. Otherwise, the hank of yarn will become very tangled if you try to wind it directly.

What is a Yarn Bowl?

Yarn bowls are perfect for holding your yarn and small tools while you work. It stops your yarn ball / skein from falling on the floor, getting tangled, and gathering dust. We carry two types of yarn bowls, ceramic and wooden, both handmade with care by artists who are well known and take great pride in their work. The classic, clean designs won’t go out of style and are a beautiful decoration for one’s home.
