For Sale: Squirrel Cage Swift
I based this piece of yarn handling equipment on an old squirrel cage swift owned by my mentor. Collaborating with a woodworker, I produced this tool a decade ago. I am now clearing out the remaining swifts in my inventory. Original price was $200. I am selling the swift for cost. Pick up from my Sebastopol, CA studio.
