We now carry as a regular stocked item, CUSTOM LARGE PAPA BEAR SWIFT that will handle SKEINS FROM 1 to 8 YARDS in CIRCUMFERENCE. Check it out on the Papa Bear Swift tab above. We will also make any custom sized swift to meet your needs.

The Oregon Wood Worker® was created in 2002 to help meet the needs of knitters, spinners, yarn dyers, hand weavers and yarn enthusists. We are the original designers and handcrafters of the table top swifts. Our swifts will operate on any flat surface. From one idea, we developed the full family of Handcrafted Yarn Swifts™: our smallest, the Baby Bear™, the regular sized Mama Bear™ and the very large Papa Bear™ models. Each model is designed to meet the specific needs of our customers. We believe in continuous product improvement.  In 2010 we introduced the Swift N Count(tm) feature for each of our swifts, which counts yarn yardage to within one yard accuracy guaranteed.  The Mama Bear™ is the most frequently purchased, as it will handle any yarn skein purchased from a yarn shop. Our swifts are very easy to assemble and disassemble, taking only 4-5 seconds for the non-mechanical person. There are only four pieces plus 5 pegs in the entire swift. All parts just slide together. No tools or bolts, etc., to deal with. All of our swifts are made of beautiful selected solid hardwoods, sanded smooth multiple times and finished with several coats of a clear hard wood finish. We believe our swifts are the smoothest turning due to the Unique Turning System™ each one is made with. Each of our Handcrafted Yarn Swifts™ comes with its own nice cotton/poly bag. We also offer beautiful Pendleton Wool Bags in different colors, as an upgrade for your swift bag, at a small additional charge. All of the swift bags are also made by our own experienced sewing staff.  If your pegs wear out or you need longer ones, just e-mail us and we will send you some more without charge.

The Oregon Woodworker specializes in Hand Crafted Yarn Swifts(tm). We also sell ball winders and washes. Come and check out our products. Come choose the type of wood for your yarn swift: Walnut, Maple, Cherry, Oregon Myrtle and Oregon Laurel.

We are located in the beautiful Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon.  Our shop and business are located in Medford, Oregon in the middle of some of the nicest stands of timber and hardwoods.  All our wooden products are handcrafted by us in our shop in Medford, Oregon.  You will really enjoy using your new swift and/or ball winder.  They will make handling your yarns much easier and your yarn will have much reduced tension in the strands.  Please let us know how we might assist you with any questions by sending us an e-mail at: TheOregonWoodWorker@msn.com or give us a call at: 541-773-7565.  Thank You- Pete Charles
