Whether you're winding brand new yarn from a skein, ripping out an old unfinished project to re-use the wool or combining two yarns for a new project, yarn winders will help you make nice neat balls of yarn.
It’s perfectly possible to wind yarn balls by hand – but you can take the time and hassle out of the process by investing in a quality manual yarn winder. The balls that you create using a specialist ball winder are much more secure and roll nicely off the hank or skein (depending on the type of wool you’re using).
It’s vital that you choose a yarn winder that meets your needs. You’ll need to consider its size, whether it’s suitable for use with hanks, skeins or both – and, of course, whether it fits well within your budget. Deramores particularly love the Knit Pro Ball Winder, which is a great all-round accessory that works quickly and accurately.
If you’re keen to purchase a ball winder, then chances are you’ll also benefit from a yarn swift. Scheepjes produces some of the best swifts on the market; these adjustable, umbrella-style swifts can be attached to any table top and are available in a variety of finishes, including rosewood and birchwood. Take a look at the reviews for each product and you’ll find plenty of glowing praise from customers who have already picked up one of these useful gadgets!
