Textured Bobbin Minis (Lot 1)
I've filled reusable 5 inch bobbins (compatible with most shuttles, with room on the ends to cut to a 4 inch width to fit smallest boat shuttles) with natural fiber yarn textures to create a one of a kind assortment for weaving and spinning! Reuse these bobbins, they are compatible with the saori onboard bobbin winder.
Each pack of these bobbins is a one of a kind collection. Most are wool based, many are cotton based, and some are silk based. Some are handspun. None are acrylic, everything in each pack is brand name quality. There may be a knot or two in each pack, but not many. Some bobbins are less full because I only had a limited amount of that dyelot/colorway available and some bobbins needed to be smaller to fit 8 in each kit.
The weight of each kit averages around 4 oz.
TO USE IN WEAVING:
- Use the bobbin in your boat shuttle. I was generous with several bobbins in each pack, so you may weave some yardage before it will spin freely.
- If the bobbin is too big for your boat shuttle, you can use the bobbin itself as a shuttle! Or wind the yarn from off the bobbin into a bobbin compatible with your preferred boat shuttle.
- If the empty bobbin is too big for your boat shuttle, you can cut it down to size with scissors and reuse with a bobbin winder.
TO USE IN SPINNING:
- Place the bobbin on a Lazy Kate and use for auto wrapping, plying, or corespinning!
TO USE AS WARP:
- Use the bobbin by placing it on a lazy Kate (or in a box) to unwind when direct warping your rigid heddle loom to create accent stripes in your warp! Yarn that is leftover can be used as weft.
