Pottery Thread Bowl for Pearl Cotton, Clearance due to tiny flaws

$6.00 $20.00

Shipping to United States: $4.25

These are the end of the thread bowls. They have a tiny color flaw or just an odd one out. All pictures will depict the flaw, otherwise they are perfectly good and do the job. These things happen and I always try to pick out the best ones, but these slipped by me. Lucky you! There are no returns on sale or clearance items.

This is a wonderful item if you like to do embroidery or wool applique. These are made by a local artist and she is fearless when presented with new projects. She also has a great sense of color. The item you purchase may vary slightly in color or intensity. Art is a process and no two items will be exactly the same.

It works like a yarn bowl but smaller. You put your small ball of thread (like pearl cotton such as Valdani) inside and stick the end of the thread through the hole (see the second picture). You can pull on the thread and the ball will not roll onto the floor where all kinds of things can get stuck on it (think cat hair, dog hair or dirt). It is cute and comes in many colors. Your friends will want one as soon as they see yours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you refund shipping overages and why does shipping seem so high?

I do refund shipping overages, if it will save you $2.00 or more. I will go ahead and refund the shipping overages. You don't even have to ask.
Shipping does not account for multiple items, which is why it can be very high...I will manually go in, when I package your item and refund you the overages on shipping. Hope this does not discourage you from ordering from Whistle Stop Wool. I will make the shipping right for you. No one wants to overpay for shipping, even me.

What does it mean when you say your wool is felted?

It means that I have washed the wool so it has shrunk. This tightens the fibers and helps prevent fraying for people that do wool appliqué and rug hooking. Think of the time your sweater was thrown in the dryer and it came out the size for a doll. So if you want wool that has not been felted, you can send me a custom request and I might have bolts that I have not washed all of the yardage.

Why does my wool look different than what I saw on my computer?

Computer monitors are just different in how they depict color. Know that there will be some differences. Please read the description of the item where I will also describe the color if necessary. If it is just horribly wrong, please contact me and I will make it right.
