This brand new tabletop yarn swift is made of solid wood with a fine finish only by sanding (no toxic varnish fume). It is super smooth to touch. It can be easily adjusted by moving pegs to hold various sizes of skeins between 3 - 5 1/4 ft in circumference. The bottom has 4 non-slip pads so it does not move around on a table. As shown in the picture, it can be easily taken apart and stored away or carried around. It spins smoothly and makes yarn winding a fun job. The craftsmanship on these swifts is superior. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
