Strauch Swift / Skeinwinder
There are two styles of Swift/Skeinwinder available: a floor model and a table model.
Both models are interchangeable, collapsible and easily portable!
Our handcrafted Umbrella Swifts are designed to function as both a Swift and a Skeinwinder.
Skein circumference is adjustable from 1-2 yards. There are three black rings on the center dowel. The bottom ring indicates a 1-yard circumference, the center: 1-1/2 yds, and the top: 2-yds.
You can determine the yardage by setting the Swift/skeinwinder to the appropriate marked on the center dowel. Count the number of rotations while winding the skein. You can then easily calculate the yardage by multiplying the yards for one rotation by the number of rotations you made.
Available in three different solid hardwoods: Oak, Cherry, Maple, and Walnut.
All Swifts are treated with Watco penetrating oil finish and need only to be occasionally cleaned with high quality liquid lemon oil furniture polish.
The umbrella section, as shown at the bottom left, folds just like a regular rain umbrella, so your Swift/skeinwinder takes up less room.
