These are 8 Kumihimo bobbins for use with my Kumimojo Marudai- Kumihimo braiding stand
These small bobbins weigh approx.. 24 grams each and have a center opening to wind braiding material of 7/8 " long. The center dowel is 1/2 " and the outside diameter is 1" making a generous 1/4" plus to wind on cords. The overall length of the bobbin is 2-1/4" (bolt length) and the wood to wood length is 1-5/8".
The 8 bobbin set also comes with cotton leader cord already installed so all you have to do is wind on your choice of braiding material and start braiding.
These are bobbins of my own design and are not traditional Tama sometimes used for Kumihimo braiding. I developed these bobbins because my easy bobs kept unwinding when I would get a lot of weight on them from long beaded cords. All you have to do is use a slipping hitch on the bare cord and these bobbins work great even with a lot of weight on them.
