OBJECT: “virgolina”.

DESCRIPTION: the machine you can see in this photo is divided in three parts: the first sector is the weave put in the lower part of the machine , the second sector is made up by some twisting bobbins of coloured rayon put in the centre of the machine. The third one is the finished product, that is a coloured coarse thread which, put in the upper part of the machine, is gathered in wooden bobbins.

WORKING NOTES : this machine is used to make the weave look prettier, otherwise it is not very nice to be seen . The weave becomes more coloured going through the rayon threads.
