Hank Yarn

Posted on Wednesday, September 8th, 2010 at 8:02 am

Is a yarn swift and a reeling machine the same thing?

This is the description given by the person selling it: "REELING MACHINES: PUT YOUR HANKS AROUND THIS AND WIND IT EASY WITHOUT ANY TANGLING." She said the retail price is $36.00, which is about the same as a yarn swift. I've only been able to find information about industrial reeling machines in the context of making silk. Thanks for your help!

Yes, just a different term for a yarn swift. Just make sure of the size of hanks it will take. The different styles of swifts have varying capacities for the size of hank it can handle.
