As Schacht finally got caught up on their production of these swifts, we had so many on back order that we are now overstocked. So we're having a sale!
The creme de la creme of umbrella winders. This wonderful swift is graceful, yet substantial and stable for very smooth and shape-keeping in its winding. The Ultra Umbrella Swift is ingeniously designed with features you will love. The optional revolution counter (must be ordered with swift; cannot be added later) makes it easier to determine skein yardage. (Multiply number by diameter of swift--easy to do because the swift holds its shape during and after winding.) Choose Ultra Umbrella Swift with or without Counter in drop-down box at upper-right. Check out feedback on this swift at bottom!

**** "Totally amazing swift! I've owned everything from the metal/plastic Japanese swifts to antique repro. Solid cherry, and nothing beats this one! Don't expect to use it with the winding station Schacht makes, though, unless you're over six feet tall😝" Janis W.
