Umbrella Swifts


Our umbrella swifts are made from birch in two sizes.

The larger No. 60C for large skeins, and the most popular, smaller No. 61C, for average sized skeins.

The Umbrella Swift is a wonderful accessory for anyone involved in a yarn craft. It takes the chore of holding a skein of yarn under tension so that you can unravel it easily to wrap your yarn into a ball.

Glimåkra Umbrella Swifts are quality products, made by craftsmen in Sweden.


  • Large Size – Adjustable circumference from 12″ to 100″
  • Birch Wood – finished in traditional Skandinavian style
  • Holds skeins up to two pounds and 100″ in circumference
  • Attaches to most tables, shelf or counter
  • Folds away when not in use
  • Can be used in conjunction with a ball winder
