Another week, another day out wandering around in my favourite charity shops. The beauty of it is I’m never quite sure what I’ll find. Half the fun comes when I rummage in a box and spot a vintage textile treasure.
This wooden bobbin from a weaver’s shuttle caught my eye. It had nails in one end, to use for French knitting. It wasn’t until I came home, that I noticed it was marked Saltaire. One of my favourite Mill buildings in the North of England.
