Possible to Spin Using an Umbrella Swift

I saw someone spinning cotton with the business end of a charka (the spindle and the posts that support it) driven by a band slipped over an umbrella swift clamped sideways and opened wide.  The swift looked and acted like a rimless, Asian-style wheel.  Brilliant bit of repurposing.
