The swift is a tabletop model so it takes up less room than a standard floor model squirrel cage swift. It is adjustable and will accommodate a skien up to 1.5 yards. This style of swift is good for any type of yarn though it is particularly good for delicate yarn since you can set it for there to be very light tension on the yarn.
This swift can be used instead of an umbrella swift, when you need to unwind a skein of yarn, either onto a warping board for weavers, or into a ball for knitters and crocheters. The wonderful thing about a squirrel cage swift is that it is very smooth and easy on yarn, holds it tense enough to unwind, but not so tense that it will break.
Most squirrel cage winders are floor models and they take up a lot of room. This model sits right on a table top. Breaks down easily for storing.
