The Jaspé

Due to a devasting fire at the firm who manufacture the laminated wood
which we use for making these bobbins, it has been impossible
to replenish stocks of this very popular bobbin.
The destruction was so great that we fear production may never resume
we have plenty of stock but the colour range is dwindling

Currently we are offering these bobbins in mixed packs.
They are available as traditional or fancy midlands.

Prices are £1.80 each or £15.00 for a 10 pack
For those wishing to buy in bulk we offer
50 for £68.00 and 100 for £125.00
