The problem with many spinning wheels is that you can't see the fibre on the spool while you're spinning. Usually you have to stop and get up out of your seat to see how full the spool is.
The Bobbin Spy acts like a rear-view mirror for your spinning wheel, eliminating that annoying blind spot by letting you see the fibre that's out of sight behind your spool's rim.
Simply peel the backing-paper off the adhesive buttons, place the two halves together over your spool, and press against the bobbin's rim until firmly in place.
THREE DIFFERENT MODELS:
•11/2 - Suits bobbins with a 11cm diameter rim and a 2cm diameter spool.
• 9/3.2 - Suits bobbins with a 9cm diameter rim and a 3.2cm diameter spool.
• 7.5/2 - Suits bobbins with a 7.5cm diameter rim and a 2cm diameter spool.
Choose the model whose RIM size is EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN than your bobbin rim, and whose SPOOL size EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN your bobbin spool.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BOBBIN TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT MODEL:
Use a flexible measuring tape* and wrap it around the spool and rim to get the circumference measurements.
Divide each measurement by 3.142. This gives you their diameters.
*If you don't have a measuring tape: 1) Take a strip of paper, tape one end to the spool (or rim) and wrap it once around. 2) With a sharp pencil, mark the paper at the point where it begins to overlap the taped end. 3) Remove the paper and place it along a ruler (preferably a metric rule), to measure the distance between the end and the marked point.
Again, divide the number by 3.142 to get the diameter.
