Can I use a yarn ball winder without a swift?

Because it fulfills a different function, you can use a ball winder without a yarn swift. The ball winder creates the yarn cake; how the skein is being held is a different matter. The swift makes winding easier by holding the yarn under tension and spinning to unravel yarn from the skein, but it is not essential.
