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. Swift N Count(tm) with Electronic Built-in YARN COUNTER 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 is especially helpful to yarn dyers, spinners, and yarn handlers that work with very large skeins. 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, if the skein is held tightly on the swift. The Papa Bear(tm) will handle skeins from 1 yard to 3.33 yards (10 feet) in circumference and all sizes in between. 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 makes it easy to divide one skein into multiple yarn balls while measuring the yarn yardage. The Papa 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 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 arms on the Papa Bear(tm) have been calibrated to measure several exact yard distances. The Papa Bear(tm) is made of beautiful solid hardwood; has been hand sanded three times and coated with times with a long lasting satin clear wood finish. You will really enjoy using the Papa Bear(tm) Swift N Count(tm) with Electronic Built-in Yarn Counter(tm).
A great swift for handling very large skeins.

"This is the most perfect of yarn winders I have ever tried! It runs like a gazelle across the savannah! I ordered it on the home page, and it reached my doorstep in Denmark in record time. With a free upgrade to the plus and the high use upgrade for free. It came with the handy bag for travelling and easy to follow instructions to assemble it. I just love it and for the first time ever I actually look forward to winding skeins!
Absolutely recommended!! Get it sooner rather than later!
