How did I ever manage without a yarn swift? I got the Glimakra umbrella swift only yesterday and already considering a second swift. So easy to wind dyed large skeins into smaller skeins :). It took me quite a long time to decide what type would be best. I read many opinions about several types and of course the experiences where all different. So why did I choose the umbrella model in the end? Because I think I would loose or break a peg of this model pretty easily. Besides that the price of this swift was reasonable and available within the UK.
We tried out the swift his morning with the some of new Blue Faced Leicester that just had arrived.
D. dived into the box straight away. This BFL is even softer than the BFL we had before!
