965 Continental Bobbin (Wild Olive)
Continental Bobbin (Wild Olive) length 16.5cm
Wild Olive , though the same species as that found in the northern Mediterranian lands, is found in northern and central Africa. Here it grows slower and produces a finer grain pattern as shown in this bobbin. It is fitted with a brass tip and a detail of a casein ivory collar ( a resin product created from milk protein ).
