This is 'Clifford', the amazing 'no aching arms', 'adjustable to any size skein', 'all metal Wool Winder'!
He's a very utilitarian winder, without the polished elegance of his wooden cousins, but his action is true and his base is blue. What more could a knitter ask for?
Unfortunately there are no skeins available to try him out but I have it on good authority that there are at least 3 on order.
Until then I'm sure he will wait patiently, in his box until required.
