Ball winders are best used alongside a swift, which holds your skein taught while you wind. Find the end strand of your skein, and loop it through the spindle and into the slot on the top of the ball winding spool. Then turn the ball winder using the handle to the side of the spool to start winding your yarn cake.
PLEASE NOTE: The ball winder is packaged in parts. Watch this video on how to assemble your ball winder.
