Swift Yarn Winder-Large is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knitting necessity I purchased my swift with a 50% off coupon over a year ago, and it was one of the smartest buys I've made as a knitter (this, and my ball winder). Yarn that comes home in hanks is a joy to wind, and will therefore get used. It operates incredibly smoothly, and can accomodate hanks of any circumference or gauge. For those with concerns about the string connections, the string can easily be replaced with plastic locking ties (personally I've not had a need to do so, even with heavy usage and the occasional help of a toddler). A must-have for knitters - two thumbs and 5 DPNs way up!

Rated 0 out of 5 by from DON'T DO IT!!! My second defective swift. I failed to return the first one, so I was stuck with it. I thought maybe I was just unlucky with that ONE. I ordered a new one, and the quality is really lacking. There were all kinds of wood chips inside the hole for the screw that holds the umbrella up. It appears to have already been returned before as nothing was in its proper packaging but thrown loosely in the box with the packaging. Like the first one I purchased, there's friction somewhere which is causing way too much tension on the yarn. Save yourself the time and purchase something different.

Rated 0 out of 5 by from I'm disappointed! I waited a bit after recieving my Yarn Swift and when I did finally set it up with the Ball Winder I bought with it it was such a hassle and a HUGE disappointment!! I've used this type of Swift at my local yarn store, so it is NOT operator error! The wooden threaded screw will not tighten down on the table tops. I tried 3or 4 tables too! It just tips over cuz the screw is like it is stripped or something.. I read most of the reviews before I ordered it, and was reassured only to be hugely disappointed. In the process of inquiring how to exchange it for one that works. Hopefully the 2nd one will work correctly! Micah

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool! A must have. I got my swift about 20 years ago and love it! I really like that it is real wood, especially with all the cheap plastic stuff that is available. I am a spinner and use it for hand spun yarn, as well as commercial yarns. It is a must have, along with a ball winder, for winding a ball from a hank to use for knitting. I have heard that in Europe, some people put their yarn on the swift and knit right from the swift. It spins freely, so I could see that being possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for knitters If you have ever had the frustration of winding yarn by hand and then getting it tangled you should buy this product along with a yarn ball winder. This umbrella swift is really nice, smooth and pretty. I am able to wind skeins of yarn up in no time. Since the majority of my yarn is in skein form this is really awesome to have. Also, I would buy the large umbrella swift as it will save money in the long run if you come across a skein of yarn that's bigger than 60".

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wooden screw stripped Good price, especially with coupon, and I like that it is real wood. Suspecting that the wooden threads would be fragile, I was especially careful with the wooden screw. But the inevitable "hiccups" as hanks unwound made the top-heavy unit wobble which quickly stripped the threads anyway. Solution: sawed off the lower 2/3 of clamp and attached a wider base which I secured to a table with C clamps. Result: improved function, less aesthetically pleasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoooooth..... When you need one and don't have it, hank yarn becomes a major annoyance. I finally had it with all the chair winding tribulations, and went looking for one that would stand up to anything. This one is definately it, AND I got it for 40% off. It has a beautiful finish, is easy to adjust, and it comes in a sturdy, white storage box. There is a smaller 60" version for those not needing 100" circle. A Super Buy
