We have long admired vintage wooden spools, bobbins and spindles. Born in the textile mills, textile industry around the world is literally carried on the shoulders of bobbins, spools, and shuttles. In common terminology, the bobbins were used to wind spun yarn on a compact carrier that could in inserted in the center of a shuttle and shot across the open weaving shed to form the filling or pick. A spool is another name for a yarn carrier often used to carry thread for sewing (thread is generally finer than yarn). Now with advances in technology these treasures are getting harder and harder to find and we have come to value these beautiful utilitarian objects as decor.
We have gathered a little inspiration for you all and hopefully you will get a little spark and know the perfect use for them in your home. As always……you can find your very own at Resurrect Antiques!
