A useful selection of tools designed to make light work of winding and managing yarns after spinning, and during dyeing, weaving or knitting. See also Warping Tools for weavers.
The handheld Niddy Noddy provides a quick and simple method of winding yarn into hanks. An Umbrella Swift can also be used to wind hanks of yarn and is particularly useful for winding yarn from ready-made hanks into balls. Its framework is very similar to an umbrella so it can be folded up or expanded by raising or lowering the clamp on the central support. The Umbrella Swift can be clamped to a table top and rotates freely to allow for fast winding and can be used alongside the Ball Winder. The Ball Winder can also be clamped to a table top and quickly produces an evenly tensioned, centre pull ball of yarn.
