The Mama Bear BASIC Handcrafted Yarn Swift is a WONDERFUL MULTI-FUNCTION YARN SWIFT-YOU WILL REALLY ENJOY USING: It will meet the basic needs of knitters and yarn handlers handling skeins up to 72" in circumference. 

Comes in solid hardwood, oak/hickory, and also walnut.  Hand sanded and finished with a hard clear wood finish.  GREAT PRICE.  100% USA Handcrafted by us.

Yarn Swift is also sometimes called a: Skein Winder, Yarn Winder, Winder, Hank Winder, and Swift.

Not a knock-off of other swifts or a Chinese Knock-off like the Amish Style Swift.  The Mama Bear BASIC swift will handle most skeins from a yarn shop.  If you work with larger to smaller skeins this swift should work fine for you.  If you work with larger skeins, the Mama Bear PLUS(tm) model is for you.  

We designed and handcrafted the original table top style swifts. With our designed Unique Turning System™, our swifts are the smoothest and quietest turning swifts available. This means your yarn will be "happier" with very little tension in your yarn ball.  

It replaces the umbrella yarn swift, Niddy Noddy, and warping board all together. The BASIC Yarn Swift sits on any flat surface- and you do not clamp it. Since it is reversible, it can also be used to create your own skeins if you purchase yarn in a ball or cone.

Works wonderfully with each of our Yarn Ball Winders: the Royal Replacement Yarn Ball Winder;  our own Jumbo Yarn Ball Winder or the Wonderful All Wooden Jumbo Yarn Ball Winder.  This BASIC yarn swift will make dealing with any unruly yarn skein a pure pleasure.

Each piece of the swift comes apart so easily in 4-5 seconds.  Includes a nice cotton/poly bag, for easy storage and transport to take on vacation or to a knitting class. Includes 5 pegs-one extra and matting.

Operates in either a vertical or horizontal position. Peg holes are precision drilled for exact yardage sizes.  Is designed to add the Swift n Count Yarn Measuring Conversion Kit to it. 

Your BASIC Yarn Swift carries a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, as well as excellent free customer service and free replacement pegs, all for the life of your yarn swift.  Just contact us should you have any needs or questions.  We are there for you.

Purchase both the Mama Bear™ BASIC and one of our Yarn Ball Winders and save even more in shipping and product cost.  You Will Love Using It.

I love this swift. It arrived last week, and the five skeins of wool I had to wind were quickly done. Wonderful craftsmanship provides a smoothly operating piece.

I love this swift - it can accommodate so many different size skeins of yarn and looks like it will last forever.

Every time I use this swift I am delighted all over again. Well made, easy to set up, disassemble and store. I have had it, and the Nancy's winder, for four years. I ordered 10 stranded colorwork stocking kits, and none of the yarn was wound. The swift and winder made an easy job out of what would have taken me days.

My swift arrived and I had a chance to try it out. It is a beautiful piece and works very smoothly. I have a little to learn to get it started to avoid tangling, but I know I will get it. I found you through an ad on Ravelry. After checking out some "made in China" models that cost less and would probably do the trick, I decided in the long run I would rather have a handcrafted item that I would enjoy more every time I used it! Got it for a birthday present.

I've owned this swift now for 5 years, wound hundreds or thousands of balls of yarn, and it operates as smoothly and looks as nice as the day it arrived. It's absolutely one of the best purchases I ever made. I love that it quickly dissembles and stores compactly in the back of my closet when I'm done! Great company also!
