Cone of yarn
I wound some yarn onto a cardboard cone. I did it the old fashioned way
This next image is from a Creelman Brothers Manual. I do not have the same sort of swift but my bobbin winder is quite similar. With an old fashioned bobbin one must be very careful in how it is wound. A cone allows a lot of leeway as it already has a good slope but since I over filled it I had to be careful.
It is worth enlarging the second image for the text about Bobbin-winder Operators.
