Normally these bobbins are used for professional purposes and are not labelled, but we couldn’t resist dressing them up a bit! We are featuring one with Sajou labels and one with Fil au Chinois. 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. Choose from Sajou or Fil au Chinois labels. The color of the label may change according to what we have in inventory.
