    You will have to wind it into two halves, and be aware that your yarn doesn't get wrapped underneath.

    I did not give a 5 star review because I found the only reasons it was slipping out of the notch were very easy fixes.

    I was very pleased with the prompt attention and consideration that this company gave, without a word of complaint from me, so I would definitely recommend them again and again, and I didn't have to ask Amazon or anything.

    The more expensive U-NITT winder takes up a lot of room and is more expensive than the better-performing one, but I like this one better.

    I received the winder this morning and it was exactly what the person said it would be, stronger and better construction.

    Question & Answers


    Is there a way to make the center of the ball smaller?


    I don't know of one, but I do know what you would need. When you remove a cake from the winder, it collapses in on itself, and there is no center hole left.


    Is it possible to wind a hank without the swift attachment? I saw where someone asked, but the answer isn't definite.


    It is possible, I used to wound balls into balls using my husband's arms or the back of a chair, but I think the Swift is more necessary.


    Does this work without a swift, or does I have to order one separately?


    If you have yarn that is unruly, you may want to use a swift. I have a lot of "unruly" balls of yarn and just unwind them onto the table that the winder is attached to and go back and forth between unwinding the ball and winding with the winder.


    Is there a place where I can buy a replacement clamp that will hold it onto the table?


    I would contact the manufacturer. I thought this was a cheap piece of shit, but I bought a larger, more substantial one and I absolutely love it.


    Is there a table that doesn't attach to one?


    There is a 10oz ball winder from Stanwood but it also attaches to the table edge. I looked before I bought the 4oz winder and could not find one.
