Leclerc Swift and Skeiner Winder


The Leclerc metal reel may be clamped to a table top for use as a skeiner or a swift. It is adjustable for different sizes of skeins, from 45 in to 60 in. The easy-to-turn crank handle and the 4 flat yarn surfaces make it an excellent choice for winding even skeins for dyeing. Works well as a swift, for unwinding too! Be careful when loosening the center size regulator, not to loosen too much, just enough to loosen arms for re-sizing.

Wooden Ball Winder Power Base


Use with wooden ball winder from Nancy's Knit Knacks. The unit incorporates some very high end features not previously available on any electric winder

Speed Range - approx. 200 to 540 RPM

(based on balls measuring 2" to 7" in diameter)

Yarn winding rate goes from 0.6 yds. to 5.5 yds. per second.

Average winding rate is approx. 3.1 yards per second (winding rate depends on both the speed and amount of yarn on spindle - the more yarn on the spindle the faster the winding rate is per second). It is recommended that older winders be upgraded with the ball winder tensioner if you are purchasing the power base as this will ensure optimal performance of the ball winder when winding at high speeds.
