Ordering yarn online is more prevalent than ever due to travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in this era of COVID. Most hand-dyed and natural-fiber yarns come in hanks* these days, requiring additional time and effort (often from not-so-patient husbands and kids) to wind them into cakes* before the creative (knitting/crocheting/weaving) process can begin.
These richly colored, durable sets are handmade in India from sustainably harvested wood. These winders and swifts are as beautiful as they are useful.
Get started on your projects sooner (and free those family members from that arm-tiring task) when you order one of these fab new swift and ball winder sets from LYKKE Crafts!
Each package includes one yarn swift, 2 pins, and a canvas storage bag.
Available in two finishes: Mango and Sheesham (aka Indian Rosewood)
Swift and Winder sold separately. Click here for coordinating Jumbo Ball Winder.
Named after the Norwegian word for happiness, LYKKE Crafts combines high quality materials and thoughtful design to produce beautiful, durable, happy-making knitting needles, crochet hooks, and other fiber-related accessories.
These beautiful needles and hooks are handcrafted and assembled in a scenic region of Kathmandu, Nepal. Production routines do not rely on mechanized automation. Instead, our products benefit from the skilled and graceful human touch of our skilled Nepalese craftspeople. As global demand is increasing for these products, this community of skilled workers is growing too, expanding output capacity.
We are happy and proud to support the growth and development of the local economy in Nepal. Revenue from the sale of LYKKE Crafts products also serves to Make Happy in that community through varied benefit programs for the workers, their children, and the community.
LYKKE Crafts appreciates and values the opportunity to employ this growing community of skilled craftspeople in Nepal and happily embraces the natural, human pace of production. We thank LYKKE Crafts' customers for their patience, consideration and support.
