Wool Swift

I went for a little stroll around Kings Heath today to take advantage of the sunshine.  On my way back home I walked up the High Street from Highbury Park.

I went into the British Heart Foundation shop as I’d seen some terracotta saucers in the window and thought they might make good plant pot holders for the kitchen windowsill.  I then saw a box…

That when opened, had real treasure inside.

What I had found was a compact wool swift or umbrella.  Here’s the instructions

The collapsable arms that hold the skein.

And here it is all set up.

Holding a skein of wool ready to wind by hand or with a wool winder.

Not bad for £2.75
