Yellow Garage dealer Patricia Mills Antiques is featuring an antique yarn swift umbrella winder. Dating from the late 19th to early 20th century, this countertop winder was a utilitarian tool used to wind wool or yarn into skeins. More diminutive than its floor standing cousin, this winder is engineered to accomplish the same task. The arms scissor outward so the wool or yarn can be wrapped around them. The center wood shaft is threaded to allow the arms to rotate as the yarn is wrapped around them. This center shaft is tipped with a lovely rounded finial. The large wood base provides great stability. Age has endowed the wood with a dark rich patina. Yarn swifts are an essential tool for any serious knitter or crocheter. This magnificent antique wool winder is a wonderful example of the Victorians unique ability to transform a necessary utilitarian item into a work of art.
