Bobbins Up | Change The Way You Store, Ply and Spin
- The bobbin has the capacity of 5+ oz. of fiber Ñ_ Your singles can be plied right from your lazy Kate because the bobbin has a built in whorl for tension! (the only one on the market!)
- The only tool you need is a drill or a power screw driver.
- Made of strong plastic material that is totally recyclable

This is the best invention to come down the pike in a long time; it eliminates most of the excuses for lazy plying by making it easier to ply correctly. If you only have 1 bobbin of singles, you can wind off half onto a storage bobbin, gauging by eye, and then ply easily from 2 bobbins. No more plying from 2 ends of a center-pull ball, with the resulting snarls and the need for a friend to help straighten it out! Admit it; youÛªve done that, but now you donÛªt need to. And did I mention, INEXPENSIVE too!
Watch the video below to see how it works!
A good alternative to center pull balls. It is made of relatively thin plastic so based on the previous reviews, I got an inexpensive electric screwdriver, you don’t need much torque. Walnut is rally just a blah medium brown.
These are one of my favorite things! Bobbins are pricey and spinning for a large project requires many bobbins. These bobbins are affordable and extremely functional. When planning to spin my sweater for Rhinebeck (1500 yds ish of a 3 ply) I invested in 10 Bobbins-up bobbins and couldn't be happier. They work great with my Lazy Kate for plying - they actually spin better on my kate than my "official" bobbins! I wouldn't be without them-
I purchased 6 many months ago,and have all good to say . Absolutely does the job and is a viable alternative to having many
bobbins for one or if youre like most spinners two or more wheels- It can get really pricey. I think its good form to aim for 3 regular bobbins if your wheel didnt come with 3. Yet, you'll find you want more as your techniques grow. Does a fine job:)
I left a previous review with 2 stars because one of the bobbins broke the first time I used it. The Woolery shipped a replacement out right away, before I even thought of returning the item. What fantastic and responsive customer service! The first bobbin must have had a fluke defect, because I have had nothing but great success with these bobbins ever since. I highly recommend them!
Great idea and good price. Unfortunately, the part that attaches to the drill broke the very first time I used it.
