FRICKE ELECTRIC "EasyWind" SKEIN WINDERS - See these items under Electric Winders page. 

 SQUIRREL CAGE SWIFT. Unwind skeins smoothly and easily from the rolling cages. No snags as sometimes happens with umbrella-type swifts. A long slot allows for multiple positions of the cages. Large knobs make it easy to change locations of the cages in the slot to accommodate various skein sizes. Great tool for anyone wanting to change skeins into balls, bobbins, cones, spools, etc. Also used by knitters who just knit from the hanging skein and let it unwind as they work. Specs: overall height 54", 41" from top of upper cage to bottom of lower cage when fully extended. Made of various hardwoods. Some assembly required. Ships in two cartons. Great Price:  $215 plus shipping.
