A work collegue of mine found this item amongst her late mother's crafting items. So far we have been unable to identify it or its use. Can anyone help please? The diameter of the circle is approx 3 inches and the suspended bit rotates 360 degrees.
I have found the answer through very helpful people on the ravelry site. It is a Wrist Yarn Holder.
Thank you so much for posting the answer. I had no idea what it could be!
Would you please explain how it does work? I wonder why the attachment that looks like an arrow of some sort. What does it do?
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
Hi, according to the information I have been able to find on the internet, and the readers at ravelry, you place the yarn on the 'pointed end' with a cardboard or metal disc underneath to support the yarn (obviously missing from my friend's item); the loop then goes over the wrist and yo can walk around knitting/crocheting etc. without worrying about losing the yarn. Neat eh!
I/ve copied the information below from the web for you:
