- We’ve reduced the length of the swift arms and the center dowel making the Mini:
- Easy to pack in a suitcase for travel.
- Perfect for those with limited reach.
- Ideal for use in workshops and at retreats.
- Most important to remember:
- Our Mini Yarn Swifts/Skeinwinders 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 must use our Standard Yarn Swifts/Skeinwinders. They will hold skeins up to two yards in circumference.
- Available in these solid hardwoods: Oak, Cherry, Maple and Walnut.
Introduced in May 2013, this addition to the Strauch Fiber Equipment line of Swift/skeinwinders uses a smaller umbrella section. It's designed for artists that want to make their own small skeins or are working with embroidery yarn.
If you already have one of our standard yarn Swifts/Skeinwinders
and also want a Mini, you need only to purchase the Mini umbrella section. It fits into both of our standard floor and table bases.
