This is the best quality plastic ball winder we have been able to find (and believe us, we've searched), and closest to the one produced by the now-defunct Royal brand. It features rugged enclosed gears, a metal crank shaft, sturdy table clamp, and a curlicue yarn-guide which snaps into place. Its removable core allows you to weigh as you wind (just subtract 13g from ball weight) or feed the ball through the skein for easier untangling. It will wind balls up to approximately 115g/4oz. The perfect winding partner for our handcrafted umbrella swifts.
