Notes:
43
- not all styles of all kinds of bobbins have yet been weighed. We will update these tables as we go along and have an opportunity to fill in missing data.
44
- for questions not addressed here, please visit our support web page (akerworks.com/pages/support) or visit our Ravelry group (ravelry.com/groups/akerworks-bobbins--stuff)
45
- fiber/yarn mass capacity is highly variable, depending heavily on the kind of fiber and the spinning style and wrapping tension. Volume capacity alone is a reliable comparative property.
46
- bobbin volume values stated here are for the Akerworks-produced item, not bobbins produced by the wheel systems' manufacturer.
