The Whirligig, a motorized Skeiner/Swift combo, was born out of the need to continually re-skein the yarn used during the extensive Roly-Poly testing. It’s capable of creating two skeins at a time at 1.5 yards or 2 yards. It can skein lace weight skeins as small as 20g through 24 oz, Bulky yarns up to 1 lb(.5kg), and everything in between. Whether you are breaking cones of yarn into hanks or winding your favorite skeins into balls, the Whirligig is the tool for you.
