Even with a higher retail price it outsells the imported swift showing that US products can complete with imports if it's done properly.
Spokane, WA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Paradise Fibers has designed a wooden swift that is out performing the Japanese models in design and sales. The product was designed by Bill Romine at at Paradise Fibers in Spokane, WA. Using locally sourced materials and labor has helped to keep the cost down but it's still a little more expensive than its Japanese counterpart. Even with a higher retail price, it outsells the imported swift showing that US products can complete with imports if it's done properly.
A yarn swift is a piece of equipment knitters and crocheters use with a ball winder to unwind a skein of knitting yarn into a center pull ball before use. This is something every knitter needs and they are selling like hotcakes. Bill Romine and his son developed the yarn swift to help offset the amount of imported products they offer and ended up with a far superior product. Their wooden swift is now one of the most popular products they offer in their online catalog of over 21,000 products.
Paradise Fibers has been in business since 1995 selling yarn, spinning wheels and weaving supplies. The company is family owned and operated and consists of a variety of Romine family members young and old with a sprinkle of dedicated fiber junkies and stunt men.
