Great for plying, wood is rough

This bobbin and flyer are great for plying! I use it so that I can create a continuous skein of yarn from a 4oz quantity of roving or batt. However, potential buyers should know that it is not ready to be used out of the box. The wood the parts are made from is rough with splinters. These must be sanded down with the sandpaper included in the kit. You should also seal the wood prior to using it so it doesn't create little fly-aways in your yarn. I find it's a bit difficult to get the bobbin out. You will need a phillips screwdriver to remove the bearing for your standard bobbin & flyer so you can attach the jumbo bobbin & flyer. Fortunately, there is a bearing reducer included so that once you change to the jumbo bearing, you don't need to change it again to use a standard bobbin and flyer.
