These vintage and antique wooden bobbins were made to last, re-use, not toss. The wooden bobbin is a bit of textile manufacturing and industrial era history beginning in the 1800's that you can hold and display, today. Victorian textile mills developed a wide variety of wooden bobbins and spools to spin thread and organize those threads on their looms, completely transforming the way textiles were produced during the industrial revolution.
Now antique or vintage, wooden brass-capped pirins or bobbins were originally designed to be used for cotton and wool threads. Today they're for craft supplies with a history, stacking washi tape, creating jewelry displays, organizing fiber stashes, ribbons and home as well as in-store decor. Due to 1900's changeover to steel alloy, brass and copper capped bobbins are more difficult to find. These small wooden treasures with a story to tell are unique!
