I had a table top swift that finally gave up the ghost. It wasn't large enough or heavy enough to handle many of the skeins I was trying to wind. So I researched several different umbrella swifts. As usual, the customer service people at JBW were most helpful, so I settled on the Small Wooden Umbrella Swift. It is excellent! I think it will handle any yarn I purchase. I like to wind my yarn when I am ready to use it rather than when I purchase it. Thanks JBW for another great product!
This yarn is one of the best I have ever knit with! I made a baby blanket that I am sure the baby will never want to be without. I had no trouble with the yarn AT ALL. The finished product needed only minimal blocking. I did not do a gauge swatch first and so needed more yarn than anticipated. I ended up with two different dye lots. There is no discernable difference in the color. I would recommend it to any level knitter!
