The Oregon Wood Worker(r) is first in bringing to its customers continuing product development and increased technology for its Handcrafted Yarn Swifts(tm). With Swift N Count(tm) YARN COUNTER you can swift and also measure the yarn length at the same time, guaranteed within one yard accuracy
, when instructions are followed. We have conducted extensive testing with the Swift N Count(tm) and have full confidence in this wonderful new product. Swift N Count(tm) with Electronic Built-in Counter(tm) allows yarn and thread handlers to measure the yardage of their skein as they create a skein from a cone/ ball or other source. This will allow you to measure the yarn yardage from extra yarn left over from projects that you can use for other projects. It can also measure the yarn yardage from a skein that is being swifted into a pull-string yarn ball. The Electronic Built-in Counter(tm) handles all counting needs by counting in both directions without making any changes or adjustments. You can create a skein on the Swift N Count(tm), coming from a ball, cone or other source and measure the yardage. Then, immediately swift the skein into one or more pull-sting yarn balls and measure the yardage for each of the yarn balls as you are doing it. It make it easy to divide one skein into multiple yarn balls while measuring the yarn yardage. The Mama Bear(tm) Swift N Count(tm) with Electronic Built-in Yarn Counter(tm) can also do swifting in both directions. The counter comes with a nice reset button. By a simplly pushing the reset button, you can reset the counter to zero to prepare for measuring the next skein or yarn distance. The counter has a very strong built-in lithium battery which provides many many years of use; No electricity is required nor replacement batteries. The Electronic Built-in Yarn Counter(tm) works for any weight of yarn or thread-there is no limitation on the size of yarn or thread. The yarn does not run through a measuring or counting device. The Swift N Count(tm) comes standard with the new longer arms that will handle skeins from 18" up to 80" in circumference and all sizes in between. There are also pre-marked peg holes and velcro to hold your yarn end. You will really enjoy using the Mama Bear(tm) Swift N Count(tm) with Electronic Built-in Yarn Counter(tm).

"I have had my Mama Bear Plus swift for a year or so now and can only give it the highest of recommendations. It is a real pleasure to assemble it as it literally takes seconds. It is a dream to use as it glides smoothly and can accommodate so many different size skeins. Plus it is crafted so well it is a work of art to look at. Love it - I really do and can only encourage other knitters to buy one or add it to a Christmas wish list."
"This product is well crafted of quality materials and functions perfectly."
"Last night I received my yarn swift. It was the high-light of my day! After a crazy day at work and fussing with my son and his homework, I put together my swift, poured my self a nice glass of wine, and wound 6 balls of yarn of varying weights and textures! They have been sitting in my stash forever because I couldn't bring myself to drag out my umbrella swift and dig out the only table it was able to be clamped to and crank it out.
The swift works beautifully. It doesn't make a sound and is very smoothe. I love the wood (I got the cherry) and I love how easy it is to store and put together.
Thank you for making such a fine product. You should be very proud of your business. - Susan Roy, Waterbury Connecticut"
