These large spools are great additions to your studio. It is a reproduction of those used in factories for waxing threads, but you can use them for cross stitch banding, ribbons, lace, and any thread or yarn you want to wind.
These bobbins are installed on large glazing machines which pass the thread through a dip of starch and beeswax. On one side of the machine the thread is unwound, passed through the dip, brushed with horsehair, stretched then is rewound on these large bobbins on the other side of the machine. It is then rewound onto smaller spools.
