Turn your luxury and hand-dyed skeins of yarn into perfect cakes ready for knitting with this beautifully made Lykke wooden ball winder, made with sustainable sourced wood. You can make them so the yarn can be pulled from the outside or from the center. Working with a ball winder (especially when paired with a swift) can be so fun that you may find yourself winding every piece of yarn you have in the house!

How Does a Wooden Ball Winder Work?

A ball winder works best with a swift. Once you have wound your hank of yarn on the swift, take one end and wrap it into the metal loop that holds the yarn, then place it on the ball winder. Then just turn the handle counterclockwise, and the yarn will wrap itself around the post into a ball. It’s like magic.

See this video for instructions to set up and use the winder, and remember to turn the handle counter-clockwise only to avoid unscrewing it. 


The Lykke wooden ball winder comes with the winder, spindle, metal clamp, and a storage bag.
