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.
BECAUSE OF THEIR FRAGILE NATURE, ALL THREAD BOWLS WILL BE SHIPPED SEPARATELY FROM ANYTHING ELSE IN YOUR ORDER.
Approximate dimensions: 2" tall, 2 1/2" wide

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
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.
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.
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.

Beautiful thread bowl! Allows the pearl cotton to unspool with ease, while keeping it corralled and tangle-free. A joy to use!
