When you buy beautiful yarn, you want to use the best equipment with
it. We wanted to make something that would be sturdy and long lasting,
but something that was tactile and beautiful at the same time. And here
it is. An exquisite piece of craftsmanship, that will make the job of
winding up skeins a joy .
Sunflower Swifts are made in our workshop here in Wales, from ethically sourced solid hardwood. They are made from Ash. The centre spindle and washer are made from solid brass.
The yarn swift comes with 5 pegs so you have 1 spare (in case you lose one!). The pegs are cleverly designed with a gentle curve, which hugs the skein of yarn as the yarn swift revolves, helping to prevent slipping.
The swift has felt on the base, which protects the surface it stands on
and helps to prevent it from sliding around while in use. This swift
will accomodate a skein up to 72" in circumference, and the peg holes
are placed 1" apart to encompass most skein sizes. Sunflower Swifts
folds up neatly when not in use, for easy storage. It comes finished,
oiled and polished, and just needs the occasional flick of a duster for
A Sunflower Swift is not the same as a skein winder, and we recommend that it should not be used to make skeins of yarn. We recommend using a niddy-noddy to make skeins of yarn.
