I love my new swift, and I’ve been in love with my yarn winder for some time now – I think we’ll make a very happy threesome. I very much recommend them both – and I ordered them both on Amazon!

I hope this helps answer your questions about simple swifts and ball winders. These are the kinds of items you *can* do without, and I did so for many years – but now that I have them, I find that they make taking care of and using yarn so much simpler and easier! There are lots of different ones on the market of course – fancier swifts, electric winders – but I like these because they are sturdy, easy to use, and affordable too!
