Research has shown a paucity of available and affordable yarn swifts in this country. I do not want one of the metal umbrellas, which seems to be all I can find on ebay just now. The most affordable source of the Sunflower swift is all sold out. I can’t get one from the US because of the price – they will attract VAT and Import taxes, plus the heavy weight means that shipping will be expensive too.
I think I shall just have to get to work on the Hubby with immediate effect.
