Yarn Winder

Hey guys! Check out this great sale! For a limited time, you can buy the display model yarn winder for $67 at Wool Tyme! Want to avoid a discount because it’s been used? Want to pay approximately twice what you would pay in the US? Then you’re in luck!

In all seriousness, I actually am really happy about my yarn winder. I also don’t have to put it together, which is nice. Still, though, you don’t think they could have shaved off a few bucks just to make up for the possibility that it could be worn or damaged after sitting in a yarn store for a month? I’m a little annoyed, but not enough to really go on about. I am happy! All my yarn will soon be in balls!

I was going to buy a nice wooden winder from BC for about twice as much ($120), but I was worried that I would be banging my knuckles too much because it was a little small. I was also worried that because the winder was on a belt, it would be difficult to maintain. I took it up with The Beau, and he said to go with the plastic. Two votes are enough!

  1. I have the same ball winder, and I love it. It has wound yards and yards of yarn, and it is still as good as new.

  2. Congrats, you’ll love it. I have a plastic one and no problems with it aside from the gears underneath occasionally eating the yarn if I’m not careful.

    My ball winder and swift were two of the best knitting-related purchases I ever made. I thought at first that it wasn’t worth it, but no longer do I feel that draining fatigue at the thought of winding an entire skein of laceweight or sock yarn by hand. (Or Cascade Eco Wool. I wound two 437-yard skeins of this by hand before I bought my ball winder, and I think it took me more than an hour apiece…)

  3. Another vote for plastic here. I was nearly tempted to buy a lovely wooden swift and winder, but went with the plastic for $$ reasons. You’ll find that the plastic winder is nearly indestructible.
