NICE YARN BALL WINDER-WORKS WELL WITH THE MAMA BEAR(TM) AND PAPA BEAR(TM):
The New Replacement For The Royal Ball Winder is an exact copy of the Royal with two improvements: a metal crank handle and longer clamp ability. It is an excellent quality ball winder that works well with either the Mama Bear™, Baby Bear™ or Papa Bear™ Handcrafted Yarn Swift™. This ball winder will handle skeins similar to Cascade 220-220 yards of medium weight yarn. Or, about 100-200 grams or about 5-7 ounces of yarn into a ball. A ball winder is needed to convert the yarn hank or skein into a usable ball. It just clamps on a table and you start turning the handle. You need one with every swift. Buy it now at a heavily discounted price
of just $39 (List price is $50.95). When used with the Handcrafted Yarn Swifts™, you will have much less tension on your yarn. You will love using this Royal Replacement ball winder.

"I have used these swifts for years. They are sturdy and elegant, solid and easy to assemble, and work flawlessly. The high use upgrade is a valuable addition. I highly recommend these swifts."
"Silent, smooth operation and assembly could not be easier. It stores easily and compactly in the cloth bag included. The craftsmanship and service are high quality and I am looking forward to using my Mama Bear Swift Plus for many years!"
"I wish I had bought this nifty Mama Bear Plus swift years ago -- I absolutely love it. It makes winding yarn such a breeze. Great service too -- thank you Peter!"
"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"
