Description

Small vintage textile mill braider bobbins, all with wooden gear-like ratcheted tops AND bottoms.

The braider bobbin was used to produce a uniform braid in a 'maypole' style wrap, often water was used to power the braiding machines. Each bobbin is 4 1/2 inches tall and 1 3/4 inches wide at the top. Trim shown is for display only, not for sale. Ratcheted bobbins are scored along the shaft (in last photo) when last of the yarn or fiber is removed from the bobbin with a hand knife.

The wooden bobbin is a bit of textile history. Made to last. Victorian textile mills developed wooden bobbins and spools to organize the threads on their looms, completely transforming the way textiles were produced during the industrial revolution.

An enduring way to organize your twine, ribbons and trims. Something to re-use, not toss. Or killer chess pieces for the serious textile hound. ;-)

Please note: As always, I quickly refund any shipping over-payments, beyond a dollar, without being asked. Haven't had one complaint yet!
