Item details

Wooden yarn swift.

Handmade to order in my home wood shop here in Utah, these swifts are made of your choice of Walnut, Maple, Cherry or Ash.

The swifts are adjustable from 25 to 75 inches circumference to accommodate a wide variety of yarn or thread hanks. This swift is designed to sit on the floor or table and turns easily on a metal bearing that is rated for 200lbs. We use wood and metal parts (screws, threaded inserts, bearing) to make this swift more solid than most swifts available on the market. Easy to assemble and operate, it is also easy to dis-assemble and can be stored in the same box that you receive it in. Perfect as a handmade gift for the knitter in your life.

Please allow up to six (6) weeks for your swift to be completed.

If you don't want to wind your hank of yarn before knitting, this wood swift can be used to make your knitting easier. Just place your hank of yarn on the swift, place it near you and begin knitting. The smooth bearings allow for a constant tension of yarn feed just perfect for knitting your items up without having to hand feed your yarn constantly. This is what swift knitting is all about. I love using my swift to knit my single stranded knitting objects, such as for knitting socks quickly and easily.

The six spokes are approximately 14" long. There are 5 holes with which to adjust the circumference using the wooden pegs. The total length of the spoke spans (2 opposing spokes) is 30" long.

Yarn shown for illustrative purposes only, and is not included.

FAQs

All jewelry will arrive ribbon wrapped in its own fiber-filled gift box. We generally do not include invoices with the shipment unless requested or the order is international/outside the U.S.

Contact us for any special requests. Custom orders are welcome. Because of the nature of custom orders (time and materials invested that can not be recouped), no refunds are given for them. Some custom orders can take up to 6-weeks to complete.

All items are for adult use only. Please keep all items and packaging away from children. Copper, and to a lesser extent brass, can react with skin oils as well as water. Extended exposure to water and 24-hour long-term wearing of items made from these materials can cause skin to temporarily change color. Additionally, resulting chemical changes can break down the metal structure, leading to breakage of your items. As a result, please remove jewelry before going to bed, bathing, showering, etc. You can clean your jewelry to prolong its use and keep it looking new by using copper or brass cleaners 1-3 times per month, depending on your area's humidity. For sterling silver, use silver polish. Always keep your jewelry clean and dry.

Everything is made in a non-smoking and dog-friendly environment. If you want return an item, you must contact us first. That is also an Etsy policy. Additionally, shipping and insurance costs are not refunded. A 20% item restocking fee could also apply. Items must be returned in unused, new and original condition. Returns must be sent with tracking and insurance in original packaging for item protection. If you run into any problems paying through PayPal or have issues with placing an order, please contact us and we will make arrangements.

Beautifully made. It was worth the wait. I've tried the umbrella swifts, but always find that they tangle easily and are a bit fussy. This type of swift is a no-brainer.

Information on Viking knit items:
I make the chain using a technique called Viking knitting. It is based on analysis of chains found that were made by the Vikings, and is more of a weave. The result is similar in appearance to a knitted chain. After weaving the wire, I draw the chain through successively smaller holes in a drawplate until I achieve the size, flexibility and density I'm looking for based on the wire gauge used. The resulting chain is smooth to the touch and flexible to differing extents. The single knitted chains are made from a single piece of wire. The double knitted chains are sometimes woven from either 1 or 2 pieces of wire, depending on length.
