      Skein Winder or Swift? 

      Skein winders and swifts are essential tools for a fibre artist. If you have purchased a dyed skein of yarn it is best to make this into a ball prior to use.  A swift or umbrella swift is used to transfer the skein of yarn to a ball winder. 

      A skein winder is prominently used to make skeins of yarn from a large cone of yarn. This is usually done to prepare yarn for hand dyeing.
