These 24 bobbins are for making lace... bobbin lace.
I carved them myself from wood that I gathered from my own backyard when I lived in Atlanta. I believe it is poplar wood.

The wood is nicely seasoned.

Each bobbin is a one-of-a-kind carving, but I made them in pairs, to facilitate counting threads. The designs are all made by whittling away different layers of the bark. The darkest bark is on the outside. Under that is a layer the color of brown paper bags. Under those two layers is very pale wood.

The part of the bobbin that carries the lace-making thread is sanded nice and smooth.

The bobbins are roughly 5 inches long, and 1/2 inch thick. They fit very nicely in your hand, and are light enough to toss easily. Very comfortable.

I am just NOT cut out for lace-making, I'm afraid... so these are offered for sale to someone who will appreciate them.
