Thread spool


thread spool - an object to hold thread or sinew for crafts or repairs


pull [a] thread from <spool>
wind <thread> {on|onto} <spool>

pull [a] sinew from <spool>
wind <sinew> {on|onto} <spool>


Thread and sinew for crafts and repairs are sold on spools. Individual
threads or sinews can be pulled off them and wound back on if so desired.
However, sinew and threads do not mix and so should only be wound onto
the same type of spool.


> pull thread from spool
You pull a red cotton thread from the thread spool.

> wind thread onto spool
