The yarn swift was a handy tool for the knitter, weaver, and crocheter as it kept the yarns from tangling as one worked to wind a ball of yarn or put it on a shuttle for weaving. There was a floor model and a table model both made mainly of wood. Skeins of yarn were placed on the wide body of the swift and as the ball was wound the swift would rotate to unwind the skein for easier handling. It was quite a handy piece of equipment.
