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.
