This tabletop yarn swift is made of solid wood and finished by extra fine sanding (no toxic varnish fume). It is super smooth to the touch and will never snag yarn. It can be easily adjusted by moving pegs to hold various sizes of skeins between 2 1/2-6 ft. in circumference. The bottom has 4 non-slip pads so it does not move around on a table. The winder can be easily taken apart and stored away or carried around. It spins smoothly and makes yarn winding a fun job.
