This midlands style bobbin will look great on your lacing pillow. I have made this bobbin on my lathe from Hard Maple for durability and good looks. I have decorated it with thread wrappings to enhance the appearance. Each thread is applied individually to create the pattern, then a clear epoxy coating is applied to protect the threads from wear and dirt. As far as I know, no one else decorates their bobbins using this method. The rest of the bobbin is protected with a clear finish which will not discolor the thread.
The bobbin is about 4 1/4“ (110mm) long and is slightly less than 3/8“ (9.5 mm) in maximum diameter. The spangles are color coordinated with the threads in the decoration. The bobbin you see is the one you will get.
If you have a color combination you would like, please contact me to arrange custom colors for you. I can be contacted by messaging me through Etsy.
