If you've been looking for a heavy-duty ball winder, we now stock the Stanwood Needlecraft Jumbo Ball Winder. This is the exact same model of ball winder that we've been using in the shop since we opened in May 2017, and it stands up to SERIOUS winding duty. (On a busy day, we'll wind somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 yards - that's over a mile and a half of yarn! And yes, we're still using the one we originally purchased!)
Please note: due to the weight of this item, we need to charge a little extra for shipping. This item ships for $10, or we can hold it for pickup at your convenience at our brick-and-mortar shop in Stanwood, Washington.
Here are the specs from Stanwood Needlecraft:
"(1) REINFORCED NYLON GEAR, our specific gears are designed to be both durable and flexible. Tough enough to handle high-speed winding, soft enough to ensure the gear noise is at an absolute minimum.
(2) TOOL-LESS SETUP, trying to find a wrench to set up to wind is annoying, so we designed our winder to be set up without any hassle, so you can wind faster.
(3) ULTRA HEAVY DUTY, our yarn winder is constructed from 3-millimeter-thick steel with rust-resistant powder coating to ensure it will stay in place so you can organize your yarns quickly and safely.
(4) 10 OUNCE CAPACITY, our winder can handle more than 2 times the yarn a conventional winder can handle, which can reduce your workload by half.
(5) CENTER-PULL YARN BALL, our yarn winder creates yarn balls with the string that can be pull from the center, making your knitting sessions convenient and neat
We are very proud to offer this large model. It can handle about 10 oz of yarn, which is 2.5 times of what our smaller winder does. The winder can be clamped onto a table up to 2 1/8" thick.
