This wooden yarn swift by ChiaoGoo is great! Use the adjustable pegs to hold your skein of yarn in place while you wind it. It packs flat for storage and is nicely finished. This table-top swift sits nicely on pretty much any surface (pictured here on a small end table) and doesn't require a clamp. Free yourself up from asking others to help you wind your yarn!
This item is purchased frequently by those who are "roped into" holding the skein while it's being wound. And it pairs nicely with the Ball Winder tool.
