Medium bobbin features:
* medium size - 10cm (4 inches) long
* slim shape that fits in hand well to accommodate 'palms up' working style, while it also suits 'palms down' techniques, making it the best bobbin for learning lacemaking with wire or transitioning from fibre to wire lace
* lightweight design that doesn't weigh down on wire, keeping it stress and kink free
* smooth surface will not mark or dull highly polished wire or chip enamel coat
* hole at the base of the neck aids in quick, secure and safe wire fastening
* winding by hand or using lacemaker's bobbin winder
* winding instructions are included
* rubber ring fits snugly in bobbin's neck groove, holds wire gently but firmly and releases wire smoothly
* no top or side hooks to catch other wires
* slim design allows stacking of bobbins, making work on large patterns with many pairs manageable and efficient
* as this bobbin have pointed bottom end, the sewings are easy.
If you prefer to make lace that requires a lot of bobbins and has only few sewings (such as ground laces), bobbin with straight cut end might be a better choice, because it is slightly cheaper: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/236870409/lenkas-bobbins-for-wire-lace-medium-set

The ONLY DIFFERENCE between Medium Bobbin with POINTED END and Medium Bobbin with CUT END is the end finish, otherwise they are the same and can be mixed and used together in one project (see photo)
Medium Bobbin with Cut End is a little bit cheaper, so it might be a good choice for ground laces which need a lot of bobbins. Medium Bobbin with Pointed End is ideal for patterns with many sewings.

Manufactured in Europe. Made from strong and dense box wood. Please note that the box wood has a lot of character, therefore it is impossible for all bobbins to be perfectly uniform. There are colour variations and knots in the wood. Also, some bobbins might be warped or will warp in the future, but this will not affect their performance in wire lace.

Detailed item description:
The Medium Bobbin with Cut End is a versatile medium size bobbin for variety of wire lace projects from lace art and sculpture to wearable art. It is designed for work with enamelled copper, steel and bronze. Highly functional all-around tool, this bobbin is recommended for all lacemakers. It serves especially well for transitioning from fibre to wire lacework, because it accommodates palms down technique and tensioning style. It works equally well for palms up tchnique, which I recommend for wire work. The Medium bobbin is good for complete beginners, because it is very easy to use. Intermediate and experienced lacemakers, who explore different aspects of wire lace, will benefit from the bobbin's adaptibility to many materials of various sizes: it works well wound with a single wire, a double wire, and even facilitate multiple strand or beaded gimp. These bobbins can be used for small to medium size patterns of wide variety of lace styles - from plaited lace, through torchon and other ground based laces to free form designs. The Medium bobbins do not require any special attention, they become extensions of the wires and allow the lacemaker to fully concentrate on the stitches.
In my studio, these bobbins are workhorses, ready to take on any task and any load, anytime. Many of my sculptures and wall pieces (view at lenkas.com) were made with these bobbins.
