The Glimakra umbrella swifts are made from birch wood and are available  in two sizes.

The larger No. 60C for large skeins (2 metre in length) , and the most popular, smaller No. 61C, for average sized skeins (1.5 metres in length).


The Umbrella Swift is a wonderful accessory for anyone involved in a yarn craft. It takes the chore of holding a skein of yarn under tension so that you can unravel it easily to wrap your yarn into a ball.
