A twin pack of unique hand crafted felt bobbins designed and made at the Maire Curtis Bespoke Embroidery atelier.
Hand felted using a high quality wool / polyester mix, these lovely bobbins are gently shaped to hold delicate goldwork threads and protect them from damage whilst being couched.
Supplied in packs of two, one light and one darker in a range of colours to suit all tastes.
We have created two complimentary designs; one has a fine candy twist and the other small squares of the corresponding bobbin colour.
Long goldwork threads cannot be wound onto cards like ordinary embroidery thread because they can easily be kinked and damaged. Instead, felt bobbins are loosely wound onto the thread to avoid tangles and snags.
Simply use a pin across the thread to secure it to the bobbin and wind the bobbin onto the thread (not the thread onto the bobbin). The bobbin can be secured to the fabric being worked using another pin to stop it rolling away.
The felt bobbins are supplied with instructions in a clear self seal bag to keep them clean during storage.
Colours: Seagrass, Red, Berry, Kingfisher, Pale Blue, Sand, Purple.
Designs: Twist (both supplied with rwist design), Squares (both supplied with squares design) and mixed (one of each design in coordinating colour)
Measurements: Each 11 x 2cm approx
Due to the wool content, felt bobbins are not washable. Intended only for holding embroidery threads during use.
