The twister is a tool used to winding of manually twisted yarn into skeins. It is typical mostly for the area south of Slovakia. The length of the skein depended on the size of the twister and, because of that the dimensions of the twister were officially established and approved in the past.
The used object Twister comes from Orava, where it was made in 1944 by a local craftsman. Cross construction originally guaranteed correct winding of the hemp yarns, its current redesign designated a new, higher position in the ranking of textile production. Today instead of material layered we place finished clothes onto a wister / hanger.
