Strauch Mini Swift / Skein Winder
All of the same great features as the standard model, but in a compact size.
The length of the swift arms is reduced as well as the center dowel, making the Mini easy to pack in a suitcase for travel, perfect for those with limited reach, and ideal for use in workshops and at retreats.
The Mini Swift/Skein Winder will hold a skein up to a maximum of ONE YARD in circumference.
The standard size for many commercial skeins is one and a half yards in circumference or larger. If you will be working primarily with these larger commercial skeins you should use the Standard Swift/Skein Winder. They will hold skeins up to two yards in circumference.
There are two styles of Swift/Skein winder 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 Skein winder.
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/Skein winder takes up less room.
